Man fined for attack on Council parking officer


A man has been fined and given penalty points for an attack on a Cheshire East Council parking enforcement officer.

The court heard how the officer was knocked to the ground by a vehicle being driven by Diquyen Trinh (correct spelling).

The officer, who does not wish to be named, suffered a broken wrist and shoulder injuries.

The incident occurred in August last year.

Appearing before South Cheshire Magistrates on Thursday, February 9, the 39-year-old was convicted of driving without due care and attention, leaving the scene of an accident and failing to report an accident.

He was given eight penalty points on his driving licence and fined £1,590 in fines and court costs.

Cheshire East Councillor Rod Menlove, Cabinet member with responsibility for environmental services, said: “Attacks on members of Cheshire East Council staff are totally unacceptable. Verbal or physical abuse of those who are merely trying to carry out their duties for the council will not be tolerated.

“People who think it is acceptable to behave in such a manner should be under no illusion that we will contact the police and their actions will be dealt with as the law sees fit.

“All Cheshire East Council staff should be able to do their job in relative safety, without fear of this kind of behaviour from the public.”
