Sergeant Rob Streater, of the St Neots Neighbourhood Team, said: “Buckley is a violent individual who is well known in the local area.
“Assaults on emergency workers who are simply trying to do their job are completely unacceptable.
“I hope this sentence gives him the opportunity to think about and change his behaviour.”
