He was also fined £50 for breaching the Domestic Violence Protection Order.

“Every day our officers respond to calls for help and put themselves at risk in order to be there for others.

Sergeant Thomas Rawlings, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “Sinclair’s behaviour on this occasion was completely unacceptable and led to an officer sustaining a badly bruised finger.

“We will always do our utmost to put people before the courts when their actions cause injury to officers who are simply doing their jobs.”

Meanwhile, a police constable was headbutted in the chest while making an arrest.

Ornella Luconi, of Gabrielle Close, Highbury Vale, has been charged with assaulting a police officer following the incident at around 10.25am on Sunday morning (24 October).
