Visitor jailed for assaulting police officer

A 31 year-old man has been jailed for two months by the high bailiff, after admitting assaulting a police officer.

Sean Andrew Carbutt, from Wakefiled, West Yorkshire, also admitted being drunk and disorderly and disorderly behaviour on licenced premises.

The offences were committed inside and outside the Nightlife nightclub in Ramsey in the early hours of April 5.

Carbutt got involved in an argument with his brother, struggled with security staff while they threw him out then kicked an officer in the face while he was being put in the police van.

Carbutt's advocate said the argument with his brother had got out of hand and the defendant was genuinely appalled at his behaviour.

The high bailiff said police officers had a difficult enough job to do as it was, without having to deal with drunken people.
