A horse racing industry worker has admitted hospitalising two police officers.
Jamie Scotland, 38, of Parkers Walk, Newmarket, appeared at Bury St Edmunds Magistrates’ Court yesterday to face four charges after an incident at an address in Mill Reef Close, Newmarket, on Monday.
Scotland, who works for a trainer in the town, pleaded guilty to assaulting his ex-partner Rachel Brown, damaging glass in a cooker and assaulting Pc Hawker and Pc Chapman. The court heard the defendant and Ms Brown were at her home following their recent break-up when he demanded to see her phone and began shouting.
During the incident, which spilled out into the street, Ms Brown was assaulted, as were the police officers who attended. Scotland bit Pc Hawker on the knee - breaking the skin - and Pc Chapman had hair pulled from her head and suffered a sprained wrist. Lyndon Davies, mitigating, said Scotland, who had been drinking, had no memory of the offences happening and had no history of violence.
The case was adjourned until October 28 and Scotland released on conditional bail.
