X was charged with obstructing/resisting a police constable, assault with intent to resist arrest, and assaulting an emergency worker. The Crown’s case was that following a complicated domestic matter the client had prevented the police from entering his relative’s property. Additionally, it was alleged that when placed under arrest the client headbutted a police officer.

After cross-examination of the police officers, John made a successful application of no case to answer at the close of the Crown’s case.
