A drunken mother who headbutted a female police officer is let off the hook.
A DRUNK MOM who headbutted a police officer and cracked his nose has been spared jail time.
Stacey Henderson, 23, had been “drinking for three days” before committing the attack that irreparably damaged the female officer’s nose.
In the early hours of August 24, 2020, police arrived at her home to arrest her ex-boyfriend.
I can honestly say that I have never experienced such pain or harm… Attempting to manipulate it runs the risk of it moving and causing more disfigurement.
The officer of the law
Henderson, on the other hand, fought cops and, when they tried to arrest her, she screamed at a police constable in the firearms support section.
“I can honestly say I have never suffered pain or injury like this,” the police officer, who has 13 years of service, said in a statement read at Newcastle Crown Court.
“Just because I’m a cop doesn’t mean I’m immune to everything.
“I felt irritated and enraged.” I was assaulted and had a lasting damage as a result.
“When she headbutted me, she stared me down.”
Henderson pleaded to assault but walked out of court yesterday, according to Chronicle Live.
Recorder David Brooke QC sentenced her to nine months in prison, suspended for 18 months, with 100 hours of unpaid work and rehabilitation conditions.
“Police officers, or any emergency worker for that matter, do their jobs the best they can,” the judge informed her.
“You explain yourself how heinous your behavior was. It appears that alcohol played a significant role.
“This isn’t your usual behavior.”
Henderson slammed his fist into the victim’s face with such power that it pushed her nose out of alignment and resulted in serious bruises.
“She (Henderson) turned towards the PC and headbutted her,” prosecutor Rachael Glover said.
“The PC attempted to turn her head but was unable to do so quickly enough; the defendant’s actions were quicker, and it collided with her nose with such force that it caused acute pain and forced her to take a step back.”
Henderson continued to struggle after being dragged to the ground, according to the court, and claimed she had “done nothing wrong.”
Henderson became a “dead weight” and fell to the floor when she was brought to the detention van, resulting in injuries to her own face that required hospital treatment. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
