What would you like to know about this please?
What is the nature of the wounding?
What was put to you interview about how it happened? I dont see how that amounts to a 'wound' but it could be another offence.
They are not going to be able to prosecute you on that basis.
They probably will prosecute for obstruction but not wounding. Also, it is not a wound but it is an ABH.
If it was caused during the arrest whilst restraining you struggling then that does amount to an ABH as your resistance was unlawful but he is still going to need to be able to say that it was caused in that way.
If it is just an obstructing then it would just lead to a fine.
If it remains a S20 then the sentencing options do rack up a bit although on a reckless basis you would probably avoid custody.
Can I clarify anything for you?
If they intend to pursue that he is going to need to give some evidence that it was caused during the arrest of you.
It will probably turn into an obstructing the police.
No problem and all the best.
