I was arrested on Friday 17th of april. My friend was being bit by a police dog and for 45seconds to a minute I was screaming and shouting for them to get the dog of him. I see blood on him and I panicked so I kicked the dog to try and get him off as I was scared (dog is not injured) police then arrested me and kept me in a cell for 14 hours. Have been put on bail to next month, am very scared as this is my first offence. What could happen?

What were you arrested for please?

It says on my bail sheet "use abusive words/disorderly behavior likely to cause harassment, alarm of distress"

Assuming this is a section 5 then its likely if anything was to happen you would be cautioned. Even if it went to Court, which I would doubt given your lack of record you would probably get a conditional discharge. But in view of the lack of previous I think a caution would be appropriate.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
