So Solid Crew rapper Harvey was spared a jail sentence today, despite being convicted of assaulting a police officer who wanted to stop him for using a mobile phone while driving. Harvey â real name Michael Junior Harvey â was convicted by justices in St Albans, Herts, of one count of assault and one of using threatening words or behaviour. It was alleged he grabbed the shirt of Pc Keith Harron as the officer tried to arrest him in Welwyn Garden City, Herts, in January. The court heard he called the policeman a âf****** pussyâ and ripped off his tie in the scuffle. Officers had to use two blasts of CS spray to restrain the rapper and TV presenter. In evidence today, Harvey, 26, claimed Pc Harron had been rude and aggressive towards him and had raised the tension by shouting at him in the street. The celebrity said he fronted campaigns teaching inner city children about police stop and search laws and would never be rude or aggressive to police. Harvey, who is getting married to Mis-Teeq star Alesha Dixon a week Saturday, said he was left âembarrassed and humiliatedâ when passing children recognised him as he was being arrested. Magistrate Peter Stanley said he would not be jailing the rapper for the attack but would consider a community punishment. He said: âThere was an element of shouting which both (of you) caused but the police officer we believe did warn you prior to the arrest and the officer was acting lawfully. âBy grabbing the shirt in the way you did we believe was not accidental or to steady yourself.â He added: âWe are considering imposing a community based sentence.â The court heard this morning that Harvey struggled with Pc Harron before being felled by two shots of CS spray after being spotted using his mobile phone while driving. He was spotted on January 17 using his mobile phone while behind the wheel of his black Volkswagen four wheel drive vehicle. At a previous hearing Harvey admitted driving the VW Toureg that day without insurance and whilst serving a 60-day ban for speeding. Pc Harron said he had given no sign that he was following the 4x4 before Harvey stopped in the middle of the one-way road and got out to question him. He began shouting at the officers in the car behind, demanding to know why they were following him. Pc Harron then tried to arrest the rapper for breaching public order laws. As he reached for Harveyâs left hand to arrest him the rapper grabbed the collar of his shirt, tearing off his tie, and shouted and struggled before the officer was able to disable him with the CS gas so other officers could take him to a police station. Kevin Cobham, defending, told the court that he would provide the next hearing with references outlining Harveyâs community work, including groups such as the Princeâs Trust and south London schools to promote responsible citizenship. Mr Stanley adjourned sentencing for a week and wished the rapper âbest of luck for your future and good luck with you forthcoming weddingâ. FFS - convicted of assaulting a policeman and the beak wishes him good luck. he will probably be at the fecking wedding as well. Now there seems to have been a bit of argy-bargy on both sides, but assaulting plod does not usually lead to a kiss in the arrse from the bench.
