Il insulte un flic pendant les émeutes : 16 semaines de taule. #uk_riots
Ricky Gemmell, 18, also discovered that a flash of stupidity would have unexpectedly serious consequences when he received a 16-week sentence for shouting abuse at a police officer in the early evening of 9 August, as riots erupted in central Manchester. There’s a bit of uncertainty about what precisely he said; prosecution lawyers claimed that he told a police officer he wanted to “smash” him. Ricky says he just called him a dickhead. In normal circumstances he could have expected a caution or a fine.
