DIANE ABBOTT’S son has been accused of assaulting two police officers in an incident which took place last week.

James Adam Abbott-Thompson, allegedly assaulted two PC’s on Friday afternoon (November 29), when he went to visit a member of staff at the Foreign Office, a court has heard.

He was accused of spitting at and punching one officer and biting the thumb of another.

Abbott-Thompson was then arrested and charged with two counts of assault by beating and a public order offence.

According to his Linkedin page, Abbott-Thompson began working at the Foreign office in 2014 and was based in London for almost three years.

After working at the British Embassy in Rome he went on to a consultancy firm, which he has since left.

In a statement from Scotland Yard regarding the alleged incident, they said: “A man has been charged with assault following an incident at around 2.45pm on November 29 at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office in King Charles Street, Westminster.

“James Adam Abbott-Thompson, 28, was charged on Sunday December 1 with two counts of assault by beating of an emergency services worker. He was further charged with an offence under Section 4 of the Public Order Act.”

Abbott-Thompson has been released on bail and denied all charges at a hearing in Westminster Magistrates Court on Monday (December 2). He will now have to undergo a trail at London Magistrates Court which will take place February 7, 2020.

    They’re trying to bring Diane down and hurt the Labour party in the process. This is like an awful conspiracy movie where the baddies just won’t stop. Peace be with you Diane and your family.

      Just because he is priveleged does not mean he can behave the way he did.

    For some reason no one is talking about why he was fired from the Foreign Office or why his bail conditions say that he cannot go near the Foreign Office building.

    This is misleading. I understand he has some health issues which make this have a different perspective. The facts are indeed the facts when you have all of them.

    Really
    So the son of the shadow Home Secretary assaults two police officers and the shadow Home Secretary tries using lawyers to suppress the story and SHE is the victim.
    Kin ell mate.
    There is a huge amount more to this story
    Like
    Why was he sacked from the home office
    Why did he only do a couple of months at the firm.
    None of which made the press
    Why is the BBC and itv completely silent on it.
    THAT is the story

    Of course it has to be a conspiracy, Dianne Abbot couldn’t possibly mother a stuck-up, born-to-the-purple kid who thinks he’s above the law

    Hours after another terror attack in London the son of the shadow Home Secretary assaults 2 police officers.
    Maybe spitting at people is common place in the Abbott household – would explain why she was so opposed to spit hoods.
    She should step down.
