Sentence for teenager who violently assaulted police officers

A teenager who violently assaulted two police officers in Nottingham has appeared in court.

Brandy Porter, now aged 20, was arrested after an altercation with staff at a nail salon in Upper Parliament Street, Nottingham.

Moments beforehand, on 15 August 2019, she had attempted to leave the salon after a dispute with staff about her bill.

As she was being handcuffed Porter pulled the beard of one of the officers and bit him on the arm.

She also kicked a female officer in the knee.

Porter admitted to both of the assaults when she was interviewed by police.

Appearing at Nottingham Crown Court on Monday (21 March) she was given a 12 month community order and ordered to complete 20 rehabilitation days.

Detective Constable Toby Marsh, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “Porter’s behaviour on this occasion was disgraceful and I am pleased she has now been held to account for it.

“Our officers go to work every day to keep the public safe from harm. Anyone who assaults them during the course of their duties will be dealt with severely and put before the courts.

“I hope that Porter has learned from this experience and will never behave in this way again.”
