A DRINK-driver swore at policewomen and tried to shoulder-charge another officer, a court heard.
Kirklees Council housing official Simon Burluraux had earlier crashed his car on a main road.
Burluraux, 32, of St Paul's Road in Kirkheaton, admitted drink-driving when he appeared before Huddersfield Magistrates on Friday.
He was fined £1,000 and banned from driving for 18 months, but he will be able to reduce that by four months if he successfully completes a drink-drive rehabilitation course.
He was also ordered to pay £40 costs.
Mr Richard Ogden, prosecuting, said an off-duty policeman came across Burluraux's crashed car on Trinity Street at Marsh, near the Junction pub roundabout, at 1.40am on January 25.
The blue Toyota Celica had smashed into a traffic island and Burluraux was trying to reverse off it.
The policeman knocked on the window and Burluraux drove away, but his car was badly damaged and he came to a halt in nearby Grasmere Road.
Mr Ogden said Burluraux got out and walked towards Greenhead Park, but was unsteady on his feet.
The policeman showed Burluraux his warrant card, but Burluraux shoved him out of the way and hid in a large bush.
Other uniformed officers then arrived in a marked police car and Burluraux emerged from his hiding place.
Mr Ogden said: "When they tried to handcuff him he used obscene language and some force.
"When he tried to shoulder-charge one of the officers out of the way he was forced to the floor.
"He was described as aggressive during the breathalyser procedure and provided an incomplete specimen."
Mr Mark Brookes, defending, said: "There was clear evidence of prevarication at the scene and initially at the police station and my client would like to apologise for that.
"He then pleaded guilty at the first opportunity.
"He is a housing services officer for the local council and also does part-time work stewarding in Huddersfield Town Hall.
"He is a man of previous good character," Mr Brookes added.
