A MAN who escaped from police while being arrested was caught after a 500 yard chase and then struggled.
Mark Law (30), of Drumtara, Ballymena, admitted assaulting and resisting a police officer during the incident on January 20, 2019.
His defence solicitor at Ballymena Magistrates Court on January 23 was Emma McCann.
District Judge Nigel Broderick told the defendant: “You have to understand that if the police are doing their job you can’t be running away and fighting with them”.
The defendant was ordered to do 75 hours of Community Service.
