A mechanic from Pembrokeshire has been fined and ordered to pay compensation after he admitted head-butting a police officer outside a rugby club.

The incident happened on the evening of 24 March at the Quins Rugby Club in Pembroke Dock.

Haverfordwest Magistrates’ Court heard how Brodie Boswell as “extremely hostile and aggressive from the start”.

Crown Prosecutor Abigail Jackson added: “He said he would assault anyone who tried to stop him from going into the rugby club, but he was clearly under the influence of alcohol, slurring his words and being unsteady on his feet.

“When he was approached by PC Smith, the defendant assaulted him by pushing him to the chest. And when he was placed in handcuffs the defendant lunged towards [the officer] and head-butted him to the top of his head, causing initial pain.”

Boswell pleaded guilty to being drunk and disorderly in a public place and to assaulting an emergency worker by beating.

He was fined £800 and ordered to pay £50 compensation to PC Smith. He must also pay a £320 court surcharge and £85 costs.
