Puodziuniene was arrested at the scene and pleaded guilty to assaulting an emergency worker at Peterborough Magistrates’ Court on Monday 15th June.

Puodziuniene, of Barnstock, Bretton, was ordered to pay £200 compensation to the officer and £700 in court fees.

“Thankfully the officer did not suffer serious injuries, but this type of behaviour is completely unacceptable.”
