A man who attacked a police officer after she tried to confiscate alcohol from him has been fined.
Adrion Anderson, 30, punched and kicked a special police constable in Camden High Street, Camden Town, in the early hours of Saturday, August 3, after she asked him to hand over the drink.
The prosecutor said: “He was asked to surrender his open container of alcohol, because the area was a controlled zone.
“He refused, lashing out, punching and kicking the officer.”
The officer was left with bruising to her cheekbone and cuts and bruises to her limbs.

He said: “While I completely accept responsibility for my actions, I do feel that they have been overplayed by accounts given by officers.”
Anderson, of Gillespie Road, Highbury, was handed a total bill of £410 in fines, costs, compensation and victim surcharge.
District Judge Rebecca Crane described the incident as a “nasty assault”, but added that it was “out of character” as Anderson had no previous convictions.
