Blackpool Magistrates' Court

Sourzac, unemployed, 31, of Douglas Avenue, North Shore, pleaded guilty to assaulting an emergency worker.

He was sentenced to a four weeks curfew from 7pm to 7am and ordered to pay the special constable £50 compensation with £85 costs plus £85 victims’ surcharge.

Prosecutor, Pam Smith, said police were called to the defendant’s sister’s home on February 17, at about 2am, where Sourzac was said to be smashing windows.

Police found him on a sofa in the front room waking up. Sourzac said he would not harm a female officer but would not treat the special constable, who he described as “a kid”, in the same manner.

He got up and removed his belt and wrapped it round his hand before pushing the special constable in the chest knocking him into a wall and being pepper-sprayed by both officers.

Sourzac told magistrates he had been to his uncle’s 65th birthday and been drinking heavily including gin and wine.

After that he remembered nothing until he woke up in the police cells in a padded suit.

Sourzac said he now intended to get help from specialists for his drinking issue.
