A detention officer from Nottinghamshire Police has been given an 18-month conditional discharge after being found guilty of assaulting a man in custody.
David Flint, 47, was found guilty of assault against a handcuffed male prisoner in the custody suite at Mansfield police station in November last year.
Nottingham magistrates court was told that Flint was motivated as a result of the same prisoner spitting at him during a separate period of detention on a previous date.
Flint denied common assault, claiming to have used reasonable force in circumstances fearing a repeat incident. His defence was not accepted by the court which ruled that Flint’s behaviour was unjustified.
The officer was also ordered to pay £620 costs. He is suspended from duty, and will now be subject to internal disciplinary process.

North Yorkshire Police are investigating after a buzzard was shot and killed in Richmondshire.
Last week, a member of the public reported that a common buzzard had been found dead near Manfield. The buzzard was recovered by the RSPB and taken to a vet in Leeds. An x-ray showed ten fragments inside the bird, consistent with being shot. It is not known how long the buzzard had been dead before it was found.
Buzzards are fully protected under the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981, making it a criminal offence to kill or injure them. The extent to which raptors are persecuted is completely unacceptable, so I am urging anyone with any information about this incident to get in touch with me without delay.
Mansfield District Council voted in favour of introducing legislation which will give more powers to tackle nuisance behaviour.Read the full story ›
