Court news.

A man kicked a police officer in the chest on Christmas Day and then, when handcuffed, punched him in the face, breaking his glasses, a court was told.

Daumantas Zdanevicuius, 30, of Windsor Bank, Boston, pleaded guilty at Boston Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday to assaulting a constable in the execution of their duty.

Nick Todd, prosecuting, told the court police had been called to an address in Boston at about 7pm on December 25, finding it to be ‘in some disarray’ on their arrival.

Police approached Zdanevicuius, who was sat on a chair in the dining room and had been identified to the officers as ‘the one causing the problem’, Mr Todd said.

Zdanevicuius then lent back and kicked one of the officers in the chest, he said.

He added: “He was handcuffed at that point. He managed to hit the officer in the face with both fists, even though he was handcuffed.”

He said the defendant was ‘clearly drunk’, adding the attack damaged the officer’s glasses beyond repair.

Andrew Goldsborough, in mitigation, said his client accepted he had ‘drunk far too much’ and ‘acted inappropriately’ and was sorry for the ‘pain and discomfort’ caused.

Zdanevicuius, who had no previous convictions, was fined £100, ordered to pay £180 in compensation to the officer, £85 prosecution costs and the £20 victim surcharge.
