Tomkins pleads guilty

Tomkins2Hammers defender James Tomkins has been fined for assaulting a police officer outside an Essex nightclub.

Tomkins changed his plead to guilty for assaulting a police constable, being drunk and disorderly in public and obstructing a police constable. He was fined £3,500 for the assault.

Chair of the bench at Southend Magistrates’ Court, Martin Everett, told him: “It is a late guilty plea but it has saved the court a trial and witnesses. This is a blot on your character, no doubt” that West Ham ” will take their own action” to punish him”.

Tomkins was also ordered to pay £3,785 in court costs, £200 compensation to the police constable and a £120 victim surcharge.
