Court: Fenland police officer spat at by teenager describes incident as “worst thing that has happened to me”
A POLICE officer who was spat at in the face by a teenager described the incident as “the worst thing that has happened to me” in his job.
Emilio Frost spat in Pc Jon Fone’s face after being arrested for fighting in October last year.
Officers were called to Chatteris High Street in the early hours of the morning, they had received reports of fighting, and heard some shouting and swearing.
Prosecutor Emma Duckett told Fenland magistrates on Wednesday: “They saw the defendant and another male having an altercation. The defendant smelled of alcohol and he was arrested to prevent further offences.”
When police tried to handcuff Frost he escaped and ran off towards the Budgens store. He went into Railway Lane and into an alleyway leading to some flats. He was found hiding under a car, she said.

Frost, 18, of Wenny Estate, Chatteris, had admitted assaulting a police officer in the execution of his duty on October 31 last year.
John Clarke, mitigating, said: “Alcohol was used as a disinhibitor, he was not thinking through his actions.”
The court adjourned sentencing until March 9, for Frost to be assessed for his suitability for an alcohol treatment programme.
