Motorist charged with alleged drink-driving after car hits house

A man is due to appear in court following a crash which saw a car smash into a garden wall.

The crash happened in Windsor Avenue, Newark, at about 7pm on Monday 7 February, when the driver of a Ford Focus crashed into the wall, causing significant damage.

A suspect was taken into custody where an officer was assaulted.

A 43-year-old man from Newark has since been charged with failing to provide a breath specimen and assaulting a police officer.

The man has been bailed to appear at Mansfield Magistrates’ Court on 23 February.

Sergeant Hannah Meadows, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “Anyone who fails to provide an evidential specimen can expect to be put before the courts.

“Likewise, those who assault frontline emergency service workers, who work tirelessly to serve and protect the public, can also expect a robust response from the force.

“All emergency service workers have the right to go about their duties without being assaulted. The force and its partners have made it clear this type of behaviour won’t be tolerated.”

Nottinghamshire Police along with other local key workers including doctors, nurses, fire crews, teachers and ambulance staff have previously released a joint video condemning violence and attacks on those carrying out their duties.
