A 23-year-old has admitted assaulting both a relative and a policeman.

Carlton Dickinson, currently of Dryden Close, Grantham, pleaded guilty to assault by beating and assault of a constable in the execution of their duty on October 7.

Daniel Pietryka, prosecutor, outlined how after an argument with his sister, Dickinson’s step-father got involved only to be punched by the defendant.

Police were called to the address in Ancaster, where Dickinson was found upstairs in his bedroom.

When the officer attempted to arrest him, there was a struggle during which Dickinson kicked out and ended up giving the policeman a bloody nose.

Stuart Wild, defending, highlighted that after regretting the assault on his step-father, Dickinson retreated to his bedroom, and admitted to reacting badly when the police arrived.

Mr Wild stressed that the kick to the officer’s face wasn’t deliberate, but that it happened by accident during the struggle.

A pre-sentence report is to be prepared by the Probation Service on Dickinson, who remains on conditional bail not to contact the complainant nor attend their address until his next appearance at court on December 3.
