Coventry man charged as paramedic treated for broken jaw after call-out

A MAN has been charged over an alleged attack which left a paramedic with a broken jaw.

Police have charged Jamie Davies, 21, over the incident, where it is alleged he lashed out after calling ambulance crew to his home in Winifred Avenue, in the Earlsdon area of Coventry, on Sunday evening (April 5).

Davies has been charged with wounding, plus one count of dangerous driving as he’s accused of colliding with the ambulance as he drove from the scene.

Davies also faces charges of driving with no licence or insurance, and criminal damage in relation to an incident at a doctor’s surgery in Balliol Road, Coventry, on March 31 when a glass door pane was broken.

The 40-year-old paramedic – who has worked with West Midlands Ambulance Service for more than six years – required surgery to insert a metal plate into his fractured jaw.

He is now out of hospital and recovering at home, police added, and it’s expected he may be away from work for several months.
