County Antrim man spat in eye of police officer

A MAN with an Ahoghill address who spat into the eye of a police officer has been put on Probation.

He had also attempted to punch a police officer and when he resisted attempts to be placed in handcuffs he also had to have limb restraints applied.

Harley McHenry (29), of Brookfield Gardens, admitted offences in relation to August 13 this year and at Ballymena Magistrates Court a defence barrister said the incident had been "alcohol-fueled".
