A paralysed traveller stopped by police on suspicion of drink driving has been jailed – after he threw his URINE bag at officers.
Felix Ward, 28, tore off his colostomy bag and penis sheath and threw them at the officers, soaking one of them in urine.
Angry Ward – who was paralysed from the waist down after a car crash in 2012 – also bit the officers and threatened to sue them, the court heard.
Once they got him to the station he passed a second drink drive test but was charged with three counts of assault.
After magistrates in Salisbury, Wilts., jailed him he took to Facebook to protest, posting “That fed up its unberleevable (sic). 20 weeks for f*** all. Back in 20 weeks.”
Ward claimed he was being targeted because of his gipsy background as part of a family that controversially created an illegal camp in a village.
The court heard became violent after he failed a roadside breath test in Trowbridge, Wilts., and was told he would need to come to the station for a second test.
PC Byers and PC Mackian tried to arrest him on August 1 last year and he told them “Get your hands off me or I will f****** sue you”, the court heard.
Ward, from Trowbridge, tried to slam the car door on the officers and claimed it was a racially aggravated attack.
He threw his urine bag, covering one officer in urine, and then began to wet himself.
The two officers flagged down an ambulance and, with the help of a paramedic, attempted to restrain Ward but he continued to resist and bit the officers.
Ward claimed to have no recollection of the incident because of the type of medication he was taking at the time.
He was also sentenced for driving while disqualified, although his defence counsel claimed he had been issued a driving licence by DVLA.
He was given an immediate 20-week prison sentence for three assaults and told to pay an £80 victim surcharge.
