A teenager assaulted a police officer while his own friends were trying to restrain him.

Ross Stevenson of Dovecote, Bourne, admitted being drunk and disorderly and assaulting the police officer when he appeared at Boston Magistrates Court.

The officer was on his way to work at 10.30pm on June 5 when he saw a group of people trying to restrain 18-year-old Stevenson in High Street, Billingborough.

The officer tried to defuse the situation and persuade Stevenson to go home with his mother, who was present, but he wouldn't.

The court heard Stevenson was abusive and caused cuts by digging his fingernails into the officer's hands and arms.

Lisa Elkington, mitigating, said Stevenson, who had no previous convictions, had been out with friends and was trying to walk home, but his friends were concerned about his safety.

Stevenson was fined £160 and ordered to pay £100 compensation to the officer and £84 in court costs and charges.
