Officers reported being spat at, kicked, pushed, abused, threatened, and bitten as they responded to incidents over the weekend.

A 53-year-old man from Leamington is alleged to have spat at a special constable after he had been arrested in connection with an assault at a house in Warwick on Saturday afternoon (June 8).

He was arrested on suspicion of assaulting a police officer and assault.

He was later bailed while enquiries continue.

Elsewhere a 38-year-old woman from Leamington is alleged to have spat at officers who attempted to arrest her.

She was detained in the early hours of Friday morning in Prince's Street, Leamington as she fitted the description of someone who had caused damage to a shop front.

She was arrested on suspicion of assaulting an emergency worker and criminal damage. She was later bailed while enquiries continue.

A 59-year-old woman from Cubbington is reported to have kicked and pushed officers as they attempted to arrest a man at a house in Coventry Road, Cubbington in the early hours of Saturday morning.

She was arrested on suspicion of assaulting a police officer and assisting an offender.

She has been bailed while enquiries continue.

Other arrests regarding assaults on emergency workers were confirmed in Rugby, Nuneaton and Tiddington.

Superintendent Steve Davies, head of neighbourhood and response policing in Warwickshire, said: "The level of violence and abuse officers were subjected to over the weekend was truly shocking.

"We will have additional officers on duty to help keep people safe over the Euros so it seems timely to warn people that we will not tolerate this kind of behaviour.

"Police officers have the same right as everyone else to go about their job without being subjected to violence and abuse. Where this happens, we will take action."
