A man has been forced to pay fines and costs totalling over £2,800 after assaulting police and door staff in Abersoch.

The 22-year-old from Shropshire appeared in court yesterday charged with assaulting two emergency workers and a member of door staff at a licensed premises in the popular seaside resort on June 19th this year.

He was found guilty and was fined £405 for assaulting the door staff and £50 for damage to clothing, £607 for each assault on the police officers, a £648 Crown Prosecution Service surcharge and a further £500 costs, making a grand total of £2,817.

Sgt Mark Hobley said: “This sends a clear message that we will not tolerate drunken incidents of unnecessary violence and aggression towards officers or members of the public, all of whom are simply doing their jobs.

“The severity of this incident resulted in officers having to utilise a taser to ensure their own safety.

“Whilst acts such as this are perpetrated by a tiny minority, we will continue to put offenders before the courts to face justice, and to keep our communities safe.”
