Police officer allegedly struck with beer bottle by teens

First published in News

A POLICE officer was allegedly hit over the head with a beer bottle after a party got out of hand last month.

Three young men were arrested following the alleged assault, which is said to have taken place at Stour Row Village Hall, Shaftesbury, on December 27 following a Christmas and New Year’s Eve party.

One – an 18-year-old from Gillingham – has now been charged with assaulting a police constable, possession of cannabis and being drunk and disorderly in a public place, and will appear at Weymouth Magistrates’ Court.

Police officers were called to reports that a large group of intoxicated teenagers were causing criminal damage outside the hall.

Two PCs were allegedly injured, with one suffering a wound to his elbow, but neither required hospital treatment.

Damage was also reportedly caused to a fence and window at a property in Stour Row.

Two 17-year-olds have been released on police bail pending further enquiries following the incident.

Witnesses and anyone with information should call Dorset Police in confidence on 101 quoting incident number 27:372.

Lack of respect for the police shown by many young people. Parent need to take responsibility for their kids instead of just telling them to go outside, out of site out of mind.
I hope they get a good jail sentence it might make them think twice before bottling a police officer doing his duty.

Couldn't have done that in my day cos the policeman would have given you a right beating and then my dad would have repeated the operation when I got in. Still, that's what happens when society goes all PC and bans things like corporal punishment at schools and smacking of naughty kids. We shouldn't be surprised, we've bought upon ourselves. Throw a beer bottle at a cop in the US, or Singapore, or China and see where that gets you. If I was that copper I would have cable tied him to a lamp post and tasered his eyeballs. Would he look hard in front of his mates then? I think not, he would have been crying like a baby......Would he ever throw another bottle again?

But in the good old days a night on the cells would have been preceded by a good hiding dished out by the night shift while the desk sergeant was unfortunately off making tea for 5 mins
