Jessie Wallace, who is best known for playing Kat Slater in EastEnders, has accepted a conditional caution for allegedly attacking a police officer in the early hours of yesterday morning
The 50-year-old soap star, who is best known for playing Kat Slater, has accepted a conditional caution for the incident outside the Verve nightclub, in Bury St Edmonds.
In the video, Jessie is seen tangling with two police officers at around 2am on Sunday.
A third officer also joins his colleagues as they look to restrain Jessie, who appears upset in the video.
A Suffolk Police spokesman said: “A 50-year-old woman was arrested early on Sunday morning in St Andrew’s Street, Bury St Edmunds, on suspicion of assaulting a police officer / drunk and disorderly conduct and was released without charge after receiving a conditional caution.”
While not a conviction, a conditional caution is used as an alternative to a charge and is recorded on the Police National Computer.
Three moths after the date of issue, the caution is marked as spent but it can be used in any possible future criminal proceedings as evidence of character.
Jessie has played Kat in the Walford based soap on and off for more than two decades.
In 2020, she was written out by producers for two months following an “incident while filming”.
Jessie said that she was ordered to “sort herself out” by show bosses before she returned from the two months suspension.
The actress was also banned from driving for three years in 2003 and fined £1,000 after she was found guilty of drink driving.
She was one and a half times over the drink drive limit when she was stopped in her Mercedes by police in Chelmsford.
The star was previously banned from the road for 15 months some five-years earlier for failing to take a breathalyser test.
