A 35-year-old Nottinghamshire man is due to appear before magistrates at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court today, charged with assaulting two police officers.
Response team officers responded to an incident after reports of an assault.
During their investigation, they were assaulted by the man. One of the officers sustained a two-inch gash to his forehead, which needed to be glued.
The other officer suffered a minor concussion after being struck in the head during the violent outburst that took place on Sunday 7th June at around 03:20 hours.
Leon Morris, 35, of Beardsley Gardens, has been charged with two offences of assault by beating of a police officer, assault by beating, criminal damage and possession of cannabis.
Chief Inspector Kathryn Craner, of Nottinghamshire Police, said:
“Assaults on police officers are completely unacceptable.
“Police officers have a duty to protect the public and anyone who hurts an officer whilst they are trying to keep people safe deserves to be put before the courts.”
