Man jailed for assaulting police officer in Abingdon

Robert Zasada was handed two and a half years at Oxford Crown Court.

The 28-year-old - who doesn't have a fixed address - stole a car from outside a property in Radley in February.

He later lost control of it and crashed into a tree and a lampost.

Zasada pleaded guilty to six offences, including aggravated vehicle taking, failing to provide a specimen of breath and assault by beating of an emergency worker.

He was jailed on Wednesday (4/9).

Investigating officer, Detective Constable Dan Tibble, said: “This case highlights the dangers faced by frontline officers and staff when they are on-duty.

“I am pleased that the courts have dealt with the matter seriously and Robert Zasada has been jailed for two and a half years.”

Zasada was also banned from driving for two years.
