Man kicked police officer

Have your say

Reports were ordered for a man who admitted swearing and kicking at police and putting a phone down his cell toilet after being arrested in St Peter’s Hill, Grantham, on September 26.

Richard Hart, 25, of Stour Court, Grantham, was with friends at 4.30pm when police officers were called in response to their anti-social behaviour.

Hart became abusive with the officers and resisted arrest, the court heard.

Jim Clare, prosecuting, said: “Whilst being escorted into the police station he kicked out twice at the officer, making contact.”

Rob Arthur, defending, said: “He was handed the phone and that ended up down the toilet.”

Hart claimed that he had not drunk for around a month before the incident.

Hart’s case was adjourned until October 22 while reports are prepared.
