• Assaulting PC Roberts-Thomas and PS Halstead by beating them in Pwllheli on May 22.

• Damaging an interior cell light of a Peugeot police car in Pwllheli on May 22.

It was felt that only a custodial sentence could be justified due to his previous convictions and his use of spitting.

The sentence was also uplifted for 16 weeks due to his offences involving emergency workers.

Mr Williams is also to pay a £128 victim surcharge in full by August 2.
