In short, you called the police to a domestic squabble and then refused to give your details?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I DID BUT NEVER SPOKE TO THEM........ONLY MY PARTNER SPOKE TO THEM WHEN THEY PHONED BACK.....SHE SAID EVERY WAS FINE...NO PROBLEMS..SO THE POLICE DID NOT HAVE ANY REASON TO TURN UP HOURS AFTER THE CALL
Solicitor: Jo C., Barrister replied 2 years ago

They did have a reason to attend. This was a call to a domestic and they couldn't speak to the person who made the call. They were under a duty to attend. Did you refuse your details?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
MY PARTNER ANSWERED THERE QUESTIONS ON THE CALL BACK.....SAYING THAT THERE WAS NO PROBLEMS,THEY DID NOT WANT TO SPEAK TO ME WHO MADE THE FIRST CALL,THEY THOUGHT IT WAS MY PARTNER ...THE FEMALE.........YES..I DID REFUSE TO GIVE MY DETAILS,BECAUSE I HAD NOT COMMITTED ANY OFFENCE...........THE CHARGE OF BREACH OF THE PIECE I BELIEVED WAS A JOKE.
Solicitor: Jo C., Barrister replied 2 years ago

OK. That is all I need to know.

You do not have a defence. The police were called and when they attended you refused to provide your details. That is obstructing an officer.

You should be pleading guilty I'm afraid.

Can I clarify anything for you?
