Anthony Walker, 31, smashed a window at the Princess of Wales public house, just after 1am on Sunday, October 19.

A witness claimed he had smashed the window in a temper because he couldn’t find the keys to the scooter.

Police were called to the pub in Leabridge Road, Lower Clapton, to find Walker was agitated when they tried to talk with him.

He then drove his mobility scooter towards them and collided with the rear bumper of their marked police car.

As he was arrested on suspicion of criminal damage to a window and to the police car, he spat at and bit the hand of the arresting officer, who was treated at hospital.

Walker, of Louisa Oakes Close, Chingford, pleaded guilty to criminal damage and assaulting a police officer when he appeared at Thames Magistrates Court on Monday October 20.

He was fined £150 and ordered to pay £40 costs for assaulting a police officer and fined £150 and ordered to pay £100 costs for criminal damage to the window.
