A man has been jailed after biting a police officer who was trying to arrest him after he smashed a car into a garden wall.

Danny Beaumont, 25, appeared at Northampton Crown Court on Wednesday, February 26, via a video link with the court.

The court heard how Beaumont, who pleaded guilty to causing actual bodily harm and dangerous driving, had crashed his girlfriend’s car into the wall of a home in Wellingborough as well as damaging another car.

When officers arrived, the court heard that Beaumont struggled on the floor with them and bit one on the leg.

Judge Richard Bray told Beaumont he must have been driving at a considerable speed.

He jailed Beaumont for a total of 15 months and gave him a further 12 month driving ban.
