A 24-YEAR-OLD man from Cirencester has been jailed for assaulting three police officers.

Jack Ayres, of Burge Court, pleaded guilty to the offences at Cheltenham Magistrates Court on June 27.

On June 24, the court heard how Ayres assaulted a man in Cheltenham.

The following day, Ayres then assaulted three police officers by beating them.

Ayres was found guilty of the offences, and jailed for 52 weeks.

He was also ordered to pay £450 compensation.

In January 2016, Ayres was jailed for 28 months and banned from Cirencester town centre between 7pm and 7am for three years.

Jack Ayres, 21 at the time, had assaulted six people and ruined a girl's 18th birthday party.

Ayres knocked the birthday girl's father unconscious and broke his nose in the town centre on October 15, 2015.

He also punched the girl's mother and another woman, felling both of them to the ground, and he hit a 14-year-old boy.

After being arrested, he went berserk in a police custody suite and assaulted two officers, Gloucester Crown Court was told.

Ayres admitted three offences of common assault, one of assault causing actual bodily harm, one of assaulting a police officer and one of assaulting a custody officer.
