Af­fair cop’s sex texts led to beat­ing at wife’s house

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A JEALOUS hus­band lured a po­lice of­fi­cer – who had an af­fair with his wife – to their home and beat him black and blue, break­ing his arm.

An­thony Tea­gle, 38, used his part­ner’s mo­bile to text PCSO An­thony Mor­ris and in­vite him round.

He had pre­vi­ously warned Mr Mor­ris off his wife Vanessa, 35, who had a re­la­tion­ship with the cop sev­eral years ago.

But Tea­gle flew into a rage when Mr Mor­ris replied with sex­u­ally ex­plicit texts, say­ing what he wanted to do with Vanessa, be­fore at­tack­ing the PCSO at their mar­i­tal home in Bris­tol.

Mr Mor­ris suf­fered two black eyes, a bro­ken arm and sev­eral cuts to his head, body and arms dur­ing the as­sault on Feb 19.

Tea­gle, of Knowle West, Bris­tol, was later ar­rested and ad­mit­ted caus­ing ac­tual bod­ily harm at Bris­tol Mag­is­trates’ Court.

Pros­e­cu­tor James King said: “He had gone to the door with the in­ten­tion of warn­ing him off but be­came en­raged and punched him in the head. He de­nied stamp­ing on his head.”

Tea­gle was re­leased on bail and will ap­pear at Bris­tol Crown Court next month.
