Drunk yob who tried to el­bow WPC goes free

Macclesfield Express - - NEWS - STU­ART GREER

A‘DRUNK’ yob who tried to el­bow a fe­male po­lice of­fi­cer in the face has walked free from court.

Ryan Martin Mul­laney, 30, was given a sus­pended pri­son sen­tence for at­tempt­ing to hit the po­lice­woman, the court heard.

Dur­ing his ar­rest Mul­laney vented a tirade of abuse at the po­lice of­fi­cer, mag­is­trates were told.

Mul­laney, of Ni­chol­son Av­enue, Macclesfield, ad­mit­ted as­sault of a po­lice of­fi­cer at Macclesfield mag­is­trates’ court.

The court heard that po­lice were called when Mul­laney was seen try­ing to gain en­try to the house of An­drew Tew, who he had as­saulted three months pre­vi­ously.

Simon Pover, pros­e­cut­ing, said: “In the early hours of­fi­cers found the de­fen­dant out­side the house on Brook Street.

“He couldn’t stand up. the po­lice­woman de­scribed him as clearly drunk.

“He told the of­fi­cers to ‘get f****d’.

“He was drunk and dif­fi­cult to un­der­stand.

“He was get­ting very an­gry and ag­gres­sive.”

The court heard that Mul­laney be­came vi­o­lent when of­fi­cers went to ar­rest him.

In a state­ment to the court, the po­lice­woman said: “He lunged for me and raised his el­bow in an at­tempt to el­bow me in the face. He was ex­tremely vi­o­lent.

“He was try­ing to lash out at the other of­fi­cer. I be­lieve he in­tended to hit me in the face.

“He was very in­tim­i­dat­ing.

“He said ‘ no won­der your par­ents hate you, you dog’.

“He then spat di­rectly at me.”

Sam Flix­ter, de­fend­ing, said al­co­hol was the root cause of Mul­laney’s of­fend­ing.

He said: “He drinks, drinks, drinks and drinks un­til he can’t stand up. In the week he is a func­tional mem­ber of so­ci­ety.

“He knows he has a se­ri­ous al­co­hol prob­lem. He is get­ting help. This has gone be­yond a joke.”

Mul­laney has also ad­mit­ted two ad­di­tional of­fences of crim­i­nal dam­age to a door on Au­gust 22 and as­sault by beat­ing of An­drew Tew on Au­gust 1.

At Macclesfield mag­is­trates’ court on Novem­ber 11 he was given six week pri­son sen­tence sus­pended for 12 months.

He was also given a three month cur­few un­til Fe­bru­ary 9 ban­ning him from leav­ing the house from 7am to 7pm in­clud­ing Christ­mas Eve and New Year’s Eve.

Mul­laney was or­dered to pay £850 in court costs for the three of­fences and com­pen­sa­tion of £702 for the dam­aged door and £50 for PC Roy­all.
