Ronan McCann, defending told Judge Patrick Eccles that Bowers had been out drinking with his new colleagues and had been suffering from “anxiety” because he wanted to impress them.Hmmm. OK, maybe not:
Bowler, of Avondale Park Road, London, was spotted in the town's square taking off his trousers and throwing them into the road.
When police officers arrived and tried to restrain the extremely drunk 26-year-old he became violent and made attempts to escape.
Miss Saul said officers pepper sprayed Bowler but he continue to struggle and fight, telling them: “You are nothing, I could f****** kill you.”
She said during the altercation he left teeth marks on the head of Pc Matthew Morgan, drawing blood.
Eventually it took four officers to subdue Bowers, she added, who also spat at them and damaged a police van.Unless he’s a wildlife cameraman, I doubt they’ll be impressed…
