Police were called to the scene and once detained by officers, Cox kicked and punched out in the police vehicle and kicked several hot drinks over in the vehicle, causing damage to the interior.

Cox was charged with exposure, criminal damage and assault by beating and pleaded guilty to the offences.

Following the sentencing, investigating officer PC Keown Gavin said: “Cox showed a total disregard for those involved in these offences, especially the member of staff involved who did absolutely not expect nor deserve to be assaulted whilst at work.

“Fortunately he was not injured, but was understandably shocked and disgusted by the behaviour displayed by Cox, yet acted with great professionalism.

“Hopefully this sentence will give Cox some time to reflect on his actions.”
