Man who kicked a female police officer in the face outside a Flintshire pub has been jailed for 12 months.

Police were called reports of a male behaving aggressively at the Y Pentan pub in Mold on the evening of 6 February.

Officers attended and were assaulted whilst attempting to detain 24-year-old Brandon Sharples.

Sharples who police said is 6ft 4in tall, kicked a 5ft 4in tall female officer in the face, she sustained minor bruising.

Sharples also tried to spit in the face of a male officer, police have shared a disgusting image of the aftermath (above).

South Flintshire Police said today: “Brandon Sharples, aged 24, pleaded guilty to assault emergency worker x2 and Section 5 Public Order and received a total of 52 weeks imprisonment.”

“Photo attached is the spit directed in the face of the male officer. Also worth mentioning that Sharples is 6’4″ and the female officer he kicked in the face is 5’4″.”

Following the incident, Mark Jones, General Secretary and Treasurer of the North Wales Police Federation also commented: “Like all other emergency services, police officers go to work every single day to protect the public; running to danger when others run away.

“When a police officer, police staff or police volunteer is assaulted whilst doing their job it has an impact.

“It is an assault on society as a whole. Behind the uniform is a human being; a mum, dad, son, daughter, brother, sister.

“The scars, both physically and psychologically, can last forever following an attack and therefore we demand that those who are responsible face tough sentences.”
