A MOTHER who reported her son to the police following a domestic dispute sat in court as he was sentenced.
Terry Eaton, of Mandeville in Stevenage, pleaded guilty to resisting a police officer in the execution of his duty.
Stevenage Magistrates' Court heard on Thursday how police were called at about 10pm on April 5 to reports of a domestic dispute. On arriving at the address, they were let in by Eaton's mother who directed them upstairs, where Eaton lay sleeping on his bed.
When an officer roused the 27-year-old, Eaton began using foul, abusive language and, acting on information received, he was arrested on suspicion of causing criminal damage.
He became extremely abusive and physically obstructive but police managed to handcuff him. He head butted a wall and, threatening to head butt a police officer, lunged forward. The officer moved out of the way and Eaton was put in leg restraints.
He made various threats all the way to the police station.

The following morning Eaton said he did not remember the course of events because he had been mixing beer and cider and was drunk at the time.
He was fined £150 and ordered to pay £102 costs.
No further action was taken in relation to the original complaint and Eaton's mother and sister sat in the court's public gallery.
