Sisters jailed for spitting at Police

Sisters Danielle and Sarah Pryor attacked and spat at four officers when they were confronted over breaking lockdown measures.

The pair had already been spoken to earlier that day and are now set to serve 26 and 14 weeks respectively.

The Pryors both pleaded guilty to two counts of assaulting an emergency worker and one count of breaching regulations imposed to halt the spread of coronavirus during an appearance at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday.

Ch Supt Rob Griffin said he was “glad” the sisters were jailed for a “completely unacceptable” attack on officers in a time of national crisis.

“To treat our officers with complete contempt and disrespect when they are just trying to do their job, putting themselves at risk to protect people from coronavirus is a despicable act,” he said.
