Woman jailed after assaulting Walsall officers
A woman has been jailed after assaulting two of our officers.
Kiera Fowler, 25, from Michael Street, Darlaston punched and spat at officers after we were called to a house in Hall Street, Darlaston last Wednesday (5 February).
Fowler, who said she was wanted for recall to prison, was extremely agitated and making threats to harm people.
When officers attended she become aggressive and abusive. She punched and spat one in the face and kicked another in the leg.
Fowler pleaded guilty to assaulting the officers and was given two 12 week sentences to run concurrently with her recall for another offence at Wolverhampton Magistrates’ Court last Friday (7 February). She was also ordered to pay £50 compensation to each officer.
Sergeant Kate Tromans from the Darlaston neighbourhood police team, said: “Fowler called us because she needed help. She was agitated and upset but there was no need for her to be violent towards the officers.
“The very nature of the job means we go into challenging situations knowing the risks we face. Despite this, we put ourselves on the front line to protect our communities from harm.
“Fortunately neither officer was seriously injured, but incidents like this highlight the dangers our brave officers face daily.”
