Man arrested after punching Lincolnshire Police officer outside pub in The Burghley Centre, Bourne
A man has been arrested after assaulting a police officer outside of a pub.
Yesterday evening (April 20), police were called after a man was ejected from a pub near The Burghley Centre in Bourne.
The man punched one of the officers who attended the incident, and was arrested for assaulting an emergency worker. He remained in custody this morning.
This follows an incident on the Stamford Meadows at the weekend, which involved two people, including a police officer, getting assaulted.
Police inspector for Stamford, Bourne and The Deepings, Gary Stewart, said: "People know how they act when they are drunk.
"If you become aggressive when you drink, then don't drink. If you behave in a way where you assault people, then don't drink."
