Woman in court after police officer assaulted

A woman is due in court after a police officer was assaulted while responding to a disturbance.

Police were called to reports of a public order incident in Peel Gardens, Mansfield, shortly before 9.30am on Monday (29 August 2022).

Following inquiries officers attended an address where a woman was being verbally abusive towards them before she was arrested. While carrying out a search an officer was kicked to her leg.

Chelsea Webster, aged 26, of Peel Gardens, has been charged with common assault of an emergency worker. She was subsequently released on bail and is due to appear at Mansfield Magistrates’ Court on 19 October 2022.

Inspector Keiron Hancock, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “Thankfully the officer wasn’t seriously injured but it is completely unacceptable to assault a person who is simply going out to do their job and do their best to serve the community.
