DERBY TEENAGER WHO BEHAVED LIKE A WILD ANIMAL WHEN ATTACKING CABBIE JAILED FOR 44 WEEKS


A Derby teenager behaved “like a wild animal” when she attacked four police officers and a taxi driver when break- ing lockdown regulations on New Year’s Eve. According to the Derby Telegraph, Laine Thomason, 19, was jailed for 44 weeks. District Judge Jonathan Taaffe said: “Your behaviour on this night can only been described as like a wild ani- mal. “This appalling incident occurred on New Year’s Eve when the Christmas break from Covid regulations was over. You should not have been going from one address to another anyway and in your own words you were plastered. “A taxi driver came to pick you up and because of your state asked for the money up front and for his troubles gets assaulted. “He ran from the taxi calling ‘help, help, help’ and you threw a glass at


him which smashed on his back. “When the police arrived you said to one female police officer ‘I will f****** batter you, you slag’ and that is what you proceeded to do. You ripped off her mask and earpiece you kicked out at other officer and they put a spit hood on you. “If that wasn’t bad enough when you arrived at the police station they were kind enough to give you a cup of


water, and you spat that into the face of a police sergeant. It was unbelievable.” Neil Fawcett, prosecuting at Southern Derbyshire Magistrates’ Court, said the incident took place at around 7pm on December 31 at Auriga Court, Chester Green. Thomason pleaded guilty to four counts of assaulting an emergency worker, one count of common assault and one count of criminal damage. She has a previous conviction for violence from 2016.


Jaz Soodi, mitigating, said his client has worked in the care industry and lives at home with her parents. He said: “She is appalled at how she behaved and acknowledges she was out of control that evening and she apologises for that.” As well as the jail term, Thomason was ordered to pay a £156 victim sur- charge.

own, was arrest- ed and provided a sample of breath for offi- cers, which was more than twice over the drink drive limit. It was discovered at this stage


that Campbell was disqualified from driving. He was also driving with no insurance. The second charge, a theft, saw Camp- bell being picked up by a taxi driver from a pub after drinking and scuffling with another person in a pub. When he got in the taxi, Campbell told the cabbie: ‘I’m going to fight you. I’m going to break you in pieces’. He


grabbed the taxi’s steering wheel dur- ing the journey, forcing the car to then go into the side of the road. Campbell ran away with the cabbie’s PDA phone system worth £100. This incident took place in December 2019. Jane Brady, mitigating, told the court Campbell turned to alcohol after leaving the Army and splitting up with a former partner. Campbell was jailed for 32 months for robbery and nine months for theft, with both sentences to run consecutively. Sentencing Campbell, Judge Jonathan Rose said it was very fortunate no-one who seriously injured or killed while Campbell was behind the wheel of the Judge Rose added the taxi driver was terrified in the second attack while carrying out his duties.
