ANTIDEPRESSANT: Robbery: Spits on Policeman: England

Paragraph 12 reads:  “It is thought he has since been
suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder,
depression, panic attacks and some psychotic behaviour.”

Paragraph 10 reads:  “Sam Lamsdale, defending, said Hussain had
no recollection of the assault
because the alcohol had reacted with
his medication.”

alcohol abuse. Also, the liver cannot
metabolize the antidepressant and the alcohol simultaneously,  thus leading
to higher levels of both alcohol and the antidepressant in the human
body.

Jailed: councillor’s son who stole TV and spat at policeman

8:10am Friday 23rd October 2009

THE son of a Worcester councillor has been jailed for spitting at a
police officer and stealing.

Azad Hussain – whose father is former mayor
of Worcester Coun Allah
Ditta
– stole £499 of electrical goods from a woman who was renting a house
from his family.

Hussain, aged 25, claimed she owed him council tax and
said that he was seizing her belongings, including a high-definition television
and computer screen, until she paid up.

However, Worcester
Magistrates Court
was told that the claim was in fact a lie. The stolen
goods have never been recovered.

Hussain, of Richmond Road, off Wyld’s
Lane, Worcester, was found guilty of the theft at a trial he failed to attend
last month. He was also found guilty of assaulting a police officer by spitting
in his face.

The attack happened in May after Hussain was found by
police lying in a front garden.

Matt Dodson, prosecuting, said he was
intoxicated. He said: “His speech was at times incomprehensible and he was
struggling to stand. He refused to leave the area.

“He was arrested
after he lunged at a passing member of the public.”

Hussain spat in the
officer’s face while on the way to the station.

Sam Lamsdale, defending,
said Hussain had no recollection of the assault because the alcohol had reacted
with his medication.

“Mr Hussain was the victim of an attack four years
ago in which he was attacked with a hammer,” she said.

“It is thought he
has since been suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, panic
attacks and some psychotic behaviour.”

She said Hussain worked as an
assistant at a residential care home and was responsible for taking his sister’s
children to and from school.

Sentencing Hussain to six months in prison,
district judge Bruce Morgan said: “Community punishments have been imposed in
the past, but obviously do not work because you carry on offending.

“You
steal, you breach court orders by failing to come to court, then there is the
despicable act of spitting at a police officer.”

Drunken son attacked his own mum

A DRUNK son who rained punches on his mother after she refused to give him his medication has been jailed by magistrates.

Jason Turton pinned his mother to a chair and punched her repeatedly after she had told him he could not take his medication for depression and schizophrenia as they would react badly with the alcohol.

Turton, of Hollymount Road, Tolladine, had been out drinking on Monday, August 24, from about 10.15am but when he got back at about 6pm the incident happened.

Matt Dodson, prosecuting, said the 23-year-old began shouting for his tablets before pinning her down in a seat and punched her in the face, demanding to know where the medication was hidden. When she managed to get away, she escaped to a neighbour’s house, and police arrived to find her face covered in blood.

In interview, Mr Dodson said Turton realised his mother had been trying to “look after his best interests” and his reaction had been very wrong.

Turton admitted the charge of actual bodily harm when he appeared before city magistrates.

In mitigation, Nick Roberts said Turton was sorry and upset at what had happened.

“He has realised the relationship between mother and son has broken down and that would be something he would have to come to terms with and deal with in due course,” he added.

Mr Roberts said Turton did have an issue with depression and was on medication for it, and mixing it with alcohol had a bad effect.

Chairman of the magistrates Keith Stokes-Smith said: “It was an extremely vicious attack,” and said he had “breached the trust” with his mother when she had genuinely been trying to help him.

He was sentenced to 26 weeks in custody.
