Ipswich: Abusive reveller Darren Daulat called police officer ‘a dirty little tramp’

South East Suffolk Magistrates' Court


A reveller who abused police officers while on a night out has admitted being drunk and disorderly.


Darren Daulat, of St Helen’s Street, Ipswich, was ordered to pay fines and costs of £100 and given a conditional discharge for nine months by the town’s magistrates.

The conviction also put the 29-year-old in breach of a suspended sentence he received in March 2013 for grievous bodily harm.

Prosecutor Lucy Miller said police were in St Nicholas Street, Ipswich, at 12.45am on June 8 when they saw Daulat behaving aggressively.

He was followed by officers who saw him waving his arms and shouting at members of the public.

In Dog’s Head Street he made an offensive gesture at someone and appeared to be trying to provoke a fight.

Police then intervened.

The court heard Daulat told one officer: “I would spit in you face if it wasn’t an offence.” He was said to have called another a “dirty little tramp”.

Magistrates were told Daulat had concluded alcohol treatment and aggression therapy programmes as part of his GBH sentence.

In Daulat’s defence it was said he felt that police had been harassing him on a night out which led to him becoming frustrated and his subsequent arrest.

The court was told that during the incident Daulat was struck with a baton and has made a formal complaint to Suffolk Constabulary about his treatment.

  • It appears the GBH treatment was a waste, and beaching a suspended sentence is no longer a crime.

  • I notice that the media have recently taken to calling these people "revellers". Why grace them with a pretty euphemism? Just call them what they are, and always have been: stupid drunks.
