Liam Armstrong aged 27 avoids jail after he admitted four assaults against police officers.

He has avoided jail because in his defence he was on ‘drugs and drink’.

Armstrong caused serious injury to a police officer by gouging the officers eyes on Carnarvon Road in Fratton on July 18th.

During the incident he assaulted three other police officers after they attended the address following a report of criminal damage.

Armstrong also admitted criminal damage to an iPhone 6 and bed frame.

lenient Portsmouth magistrates allowed his to walk free from court with a two month sentence suspended for a year.

He was ordered to pay £500 compensation to one officer £100 to the other three officers and then a £115 victim surcharge and £85 prosecution costs.
