Two men have appeared in the Norwich Magistrates’ Court where they faced charges relating to an assault on a police officer.
Rokas Krepsta, of London Road in King’s Lynn, and Mindaugas Petrauskas, of St Michaels Road in the same town, were accused of assaulting Pc Ross McConnachie on January 18 during an encounter in King’s Lynn.
Pc McConnachie said he been punched once in the face, while kicks were also aimed at him.
While Krepsta pleaded guilty, Petrauskas entered a not guilty plea.
He was given conditional bail and his trial set down for February 8 at the King’s Lynn Magistrates’ Court.
Krepsta told the court that he had no memory of the incident due to excessive drinking. He said that if he had remembered he would have felt sorry and regretful for his actions.
The court took into account that he had shown remorse and he was ordered to pay £150 to Pc McConnachie, as well as £230 court costs.
