A teenager broke the special police officer’s finger when he slammed the door to “protect his father.


Police drove to Jack Williams’ home in Huyton to arrest his father for an alleged violation of a harassment order against his mother.

A teenager who broke a special police officer’s finger when he slammed a door on his hand was released from prison today.

A judge said it was “disproportionate” to send him to prison.

prosecutor Jamie Baxter said: “He was combative with the officers. His first words were, “What the hell do you want?

The officers thought Williams Senior was on the Lordens Road property when his son opened the door on March 7 last year.

The Crown Court in Liverpool heard that Carl Williams had been banned from being in the house or contacting them for “domestic violence”.

Mr Baxter said: “In true TV manner, the defendant claimed that the officers needed a search warrant to enter the house. Of course, this is not the case at all.

The court heard them explain their reason for being there, but described the then 18-year-old Williams jnr. as “aggressive”.

Special police officer Nathan Beavin put his left foot in the door to prevent it from being closed and put his left hand on the edge and outside the door frame.

He said Williams jnr, now 20, had pressed the door twice with both hands to prevent the officers from entering.

“Obviously, the defendant decided to protect his father, who was illegally in the address at the time.

Mr. Baxter said that the first thrust caused Officer Beavin to move backwards and lose his footing, while the second “slammed the door and caught Officer Beavin’s left hand in the door frame.

He said Williams Jr. admitted to causing grievous bodily harm based on “reckless injury” and stated that he was unaware that the officer’s hand was stuck in the door.

said Mr Baxter: “There was clearly a risk of injury when an officer was in and around the building.

Mr Baxter said: “There was a clear risk of injury: he could see blood and what looked like a bone protruding from the skin of one of his fingers,” Baxter said. I think in the end it was cartilage.”

He said the officer cried out and Williams Jr. let go of his handle on the door before an ambulance took his victim to the hospital.

Officer Beavin, who underwent surgery and spent three nights in the hospital, told the court he now had “limited fingertip mobility.

At the time, he feared that he would not be able to become a full-time police officer, and although he has since done so, he is still concerned that he may not be able to specialize in certain areas of work, such as firearms officer.

The victim was taken to Whiston Hospital with a compound fracture at the tip of a finger and cuts.
