A HUDDERSFIELD Town player has admitted attacking two women paramedics.
Adam Hammill, 24, of Hall Road East, Bootle, pleaded guilty to two counts of assault when he appeared before Liverpool Magistrates Court today.
The former Liverpool FC youth player footballer is currently on loan to Huddersfield Town from Wolverhampton Wanderers.
The winger was arrested outside the Revolution bar, in Temple Court, Liverpool city centre, in the early hours of Sunday, October 7.
Amanda Haycock, prosecuting, said ambulance staff Sky Armstrong and Tracy Northey were called out because Hammill was unconscious.
But when they tried to put him in a wheelchair he became aggressive.
Miss Haycock said: “He hit out, catching Miss Northey on the nose, spat blood at them and tried to bite them.’’
She said police officers called to the scene to help the paramedics heard Hammill verbally abuse them and they could smell alcohol on him.
She said: “Despite appearing extremely drunk he had a very strong grip and was difficult to restrain.
“With the help of colleagues who had arrived to assist he was placed in the rear of the ambulance as he needed medical treatment and officers were trying to dodge Mr Hammill’s mouth as he to bite those around him.’’
She said he was handcuffed and had to be ‘pinned down’ to the bed in the ambulance to be restrained.
Miss Northey was described as “shaken, shocked and angered by what had happened at the scene.’’
Phil Moy, defending, said there was a “lot to be said on mitigation’’ in the matter.
The case was adjourned for sentencing next Tuesday.
A Huddersfield Town spokesman said: "Adam has already been subject to an internal disciplinary procedure at the club, but we will revisit any possible further action when the legal process has been concluded."
