Carlisle man jailed for flouting suspended prison terms by abusing police officer

Carlisle Crown Court

[A] CARLISLE man has been jailed after he flouted two suspended prison terms by being abusive to police while drunk.

Daniel Spiers, 28, was punished at court in both 2016 and 2017, first for an unprovoked assault on a male who was injured, and then for damaging property.

In both cases, prison sentences were suspended.

But Carlisle Crown Court heard today that Spiers landed himself in further hot water on January 30. He visited a city centre house which was the subject of a police search warrant while drunk.

Spiers was said to have been repeatedly abusive to an officer, and had “clamped himself” to a staircase rail “for 20 minutes” before being arrested.

He admitted obstructing the officer, and was sentenced today (THURS). The court heard Spiers, of Whernside, Carlisle, had “put his life on track” after previous problems.

But Judge James Adkin jailed him for eight months, saying: “It seems to me that enough is enough.”
