Three men have been convicted of obstructing a constable in the execution of his duty.

The convictions relate to an incident in Queensway, Bletchley, at 12.30pm on June 17 last year.

All three men were charged on November 12 and found guilty at Milton Keynes Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday and sentenced on the same day.

John Thomas, 27, of Ramsons Avenue, Milton Keynes, was found guilty of obstructing a constable in the execution of his duty and was ordered to pay a £110 fine, £310 court costs and a £20 victim surcharge.

During the incident in Queensway, John Thomas approached an officer who was carrying out enquiries and tried to stop him from arresting a man.

Kevin Thomas, of Western Road, Bletchley, was found guilty of obstructing a constable in the execution of his duty and a public order offence.

He was ordered to pay a £110 fine for obstructing an officer, a fine of £195 for the public order offence and was required to pay £50 compensation, a £20 victim surcharge and £310 court costs.

He verbally abused an officer with homophobic abuse during the incident and also tried to resist arrest, but was subsequently detained.

Enzo Marsala, 47, of Torre Close, Bletchley, was found guilty of obstructing a constable in the execution of his duty and assault by beating.

He was ordered to pay a £110 fine, £50 compensation for the assault, a £30 victim surcharge and £310 court costs.

During the incident in Queensway, Marsala tried to prevent an officer from carrying out enquiries and, during the altercation, he assaulted a 37-year-old woman.

PC Steven Prestige, from the Bletchley Neighbourhood Policing Team, said: “This conviction and the subsequent fines handed to the offenders demonstrate that we will prosecute offenders who obstruct officers and try to prevent them from carrying out their duty.

“I am pleased with the result of this case and hope it will serve as a deterrent to other would-be offenders.”
