Policeman left unconscious

News | Published:

A BRUTAL drunken assault in a takeaway queue left an off-duty policeman lying unconscious in a pool of blood, the Royal Court heard on Friday.

Krzysztof Kopec (30) has been jailed for two years after being caught on CCTV kicking off-duty police constable John Gibson in the head while wearing steel-toe-capped boots.

Kopec, a Polish-born scaffolder who has lived in the Island for five years, admitted two counts of grave and criminal assault – one on PC Gibson and one on the policeman's friend – after the court heard that he had been drinking all day before the incident.

The defendant and a friend had left the Lamplighter Pub and gone to the Turkish Kitchen takeaway at around 11 pm on 3 July. He had ordered his food and then left to wait outside, before going back in.
