Man jailed for six weeks after attacking victim inside Lincoln police station
A man who chased his victim into Lincoln's West Parade Police Station and then attacked him inside the building has been jailed at Lincoln Crown Court.
James Agnew pursued his victim Wayne Nelson into the station and then delivered a number of blows before running out into the street.
Andrew Scott, prosecuting, said that Agnew was immediately chased by a large number of officers and arrested nearby.
Agnew was himself injured and taken to hospital for treatment but when he was brought back to the West Parade Police Station he spat over the officer escorting him into the custody area.

The phlegm hit PC Stuart Donnelly on the right hand and arm.
Agnew, 39, of Beaumont Fee, Lincoln, admitted assaulting Wayne Nelson by beating on October 4, 2012. He also admitted assaulting PC Donnelly in the execution of his duty. He was jailed for six weeks and ordered to pay a £80 victim surcharge.
Judge Michael Heath told him: "The more serious offence in this case is the assault on the police officer.
"This court will not tolerate police officers being spat at."
James Robotham, defending, said Agnew's life had been blighted by addictions but he had received help from the Pathway Centre.
