Man escapes jail following string of booze-fuelled offences

A 38-year-old man escaped jail after admitting a string of alcohol-fuelled offences committed on the same day in Maidenhead.

Drew McLintoch, of Parkside, received a suspended sentence after pleading guilty to assaulting his wife at the Thames Riviera Hotel.

Magistrates heard the incident on December 22 was witnessed by off-duty police officers who confronted him about his behaviour.

McLintoch, who had been drinking, became aggressive towards the officers and was eventually arrested.

He also admitted assaulting a police officer and racially-aggravated threatening behaviour.

He was handed two 12-week prison sentences, to run concurrently, suspended for two years.

He has been told to take part in a domestic violence programme and to pay £250 compensation and £50 costs.

McLintoch was also accused of grabbing the genitals of an officer while being held at Maidenhead Police Station over the earlier offences, but a sexual assault charge against him was dropped.

A charge of committing racially-aggravated threatening behaviour towards a police officer with intent was also dropped.

He was sentenced at Slough Magistrates' Court on Thursday, March 21.
