A MAN who as­saulted THREE po­lice of­fi­cers af­ter dam­ag­ing a car has been jailed.

Daniel Jack Crouch, 23, in­jured con­sta­bles Thomas Pinder, Ian Paterson and Christopher Howard dur­ing the in­ci­dent in Mac­cles­field on May 15.

On the same day he dam­aged the wind­screen of an Audi TT. Then on the fol­low­ing day he caused dam­age to the po­lice cell at Cheshire Po­lice’s cus­tody suite in Mid­dlewich.

At Mac­cles­field mag­is­trates court, Crouch, of Don­agh Close, Up­ton Pri­ory, ad­mit­ted three charges of as­sault­ing a po­lice con­sta­ble in the ex­e­cu­tion of their duty and two charges of crim­i­nal dam­age.

He was jailed for eight weeks and or­dered to pay a to­tal of £425 com­pen­sa­tion to the po­lice of­fi­cers as well as £75 to the car owner.

Court records show the rea­sons mag­is­trates jailed Crouch were that they felt the of­fence was ‘se­ri­ous’ and ‘no other sen­tence can be jus­ti­fied or vi­able in the cir­cum­stances be­cause the of­fence was ag­gra­vated by the de­fen­dant’s record of pre­vi­ous of­fend­ing’.
