A man has been jailed for more than a year after assaulting a Police Community Support Officer (PCSO) by throwing a cheese sandwich at him. Thomas South, 20, hurled the packaged sandwich at PCSO James Wilkinson, leaving him with a cut lip.
Scott had been trying to escape the officer after trying to use a fake £20 note in a shop. Suspicious staff who spotted the scam called police. He had earlier bought the cheese bap with another fake note from a Costa Coffee in Nottingham.
Jailing him at Nottingham Crown Court, Judge Andrew Hamilton told him: ‘There was no need for that whatsoever, and you are going to end up in custody.’
