A man who assaulted three police officers and staged a ‘dirty protest’ in an Isle of Wight custody suite has been jailed for six months.
Officers were arresting 30-year-old Stefan Lord, of Winchester Close, Sandown, for a criminal damage offence at an address on Saturday. He didn’t come quietly; he coughed at them and claimed to have COVID-19.
Whilst in custody, he then assaulted a third officer by attempting to bite them on the leg.
Lord went on to defecate on the floor of his cell, acquiring up another charge of criminal damage.
Overall, he was charged with: two counts of criminal damage, one count of common assault of an emergency worker and two counts of assault by beating of an emergency worker.
At the Isle of Wight Magistrates’ Court less than 48 hours after the charges were brought, the violent offender was sentenced to six months imprisonment.
