Rawlins v Crown Prosecution Service

Police – Assault on constable in execution of duty. The justices had been, in law, entitled to conclude that there had been reasonable grounds to arrest the appellant to prevent a breach of the peace. The Administrative Court, in dismissing the appellant's appeal by way of case stated against his convictions for assaulting a constable in the execution of his duty, further held that it had been right for the justices to conclude that there had been no evidence to support a contention that police officers had been unlawfully evicting the appellant.
