Doherty, who admitted two counts of assaulting an emergency worker, driving while disqualified and driving without insurance, was sentenced to nine weeks in prison suspended for 16 months and ordered to carry our 120 hours of unpaid work.

He was ordered to pay £100 in compensation to each paramedic, plus £85 in costs and a victim surcharge of £128.
