A TEENAGER was jailed for 16 weeks after kicking two officers dealing with an incident in a Southampton park.

Pc Christopher Collins was kneeling down arresting one of a group in Mansel Park, Millbrook, when Stuart Skeats took a running kick and struck in the head.

The city crown court heard Skeats ran off but as he was being detained by Pc Daniel Robinson he “jump-kicked” him, injuring a knee ligament.

In interview, the 18-year-old said he was drunk having knocked back two two-litre bottles of cider and 12 bottles of lager and his recollection of what happened was vague.

Skeats, of Oakridge Road, Southampton, admitted two charges of causing actual bodily harm.
