Man who has “problem with authority” admits assault in police staff

First published in News

A POOLE man has admitted four assaults on police staff, claiming he has a “problem with authority.”

Alan Lambert, 52, lashed out at two different police community support officers and a police officer after being told he was drinking in a no-drinking zone on April 5.

Alison Saunders, pros- ecuting, told Bournemouth Magistrates Court Lambert had thrown his beer can in the air, striking a police community support officer on the shoulder, and then “kicked out” several times.

She said he also spat at a police officer when stepping out of a police van.

“In interview he admitted the offences and said he had no respect for authority and became angry when he was told he was in a no drinking zone,” she said.

Lambert, of Fitzworth Avenue, will be sentenced on May 15.

Let's see if he has a problem with prison staff because he should get jail.

Looks like he has a problem with his drinking more than anything else.

And to think otherwise .......you got to be deluded !

I don't like authority so I keep myself out of situations where I might have to deal with Pigs, it's that simple, although if you haven't worked that out by the age of 52, you must be a bit thick & deserve getting nicked. Idiot.
