Jade Jagger has been fined for resisting arrest in Ibiza
Ade Jagger has left court in Ibiza after resisting being arrested and wounded and accepting a fine of 1,400 euros (£1,215).
The 51-year-old jewelry designer learned of her fate on Friday after reaching an agreement with prosecutors after hours of negotiations between lawyers behind closed doors.
She was also ordered to pay £695 to a police officer she injured in a fight in Ibiza Town on Wednesday night.
Her boyfriend, 31, Anthony Hinkson, has been sentenced to four months in prison after admitting to assault.
It is believed he was allowed to leave court a free man, as first-time offenders in Spain normally face suspended prison sentences of two years or less.
The couple, who said nothing as they left court separately, were taken to court in a police van early Friday morning after spending two nights in police cells following their arrest on Wednesday night.
They were held on suspicion of committing a crime known in Spain as “atentado contra la autoridad”, which includes acts ranging from violent resistance to arrest to assaulting a police officer.
The penalty in Spain is between one and four years imprisonment.
It was confirmed later this morning that a police union had decided to pursue the couple privately in a lawsuit running parallel to but separate from prosecutors.
Judge Maria Luisa Bustillo’s ruling following a negotiated settlement means both cases are now at an end.
A Balearic High Court official, speaking as the judge’s spokesman, confirmed: “The Number One Instruction Court in Ibiza, acting as the court on duty, has held a speedy trial following a settlement agreement against AW and JJ” were held in Ibiza on Wednesday arrested.
“The judge found AW guilty of assaulting a police officer and sentenced him to four months in prison.
“The same judge fined JJ for a felony of aggravated resisting and minor assault.
“The fine for the first violation is 10 euros per day for four months and for the second a 20-day fine of 10 euros per day.”
“JJ must also compensate her victim with 800 euros.”
The verdict ended a turbulent three days for the couple.
They were arrested around 9pm on Wednesday outside a trendy Ibiza Town eatery called La Oliva and were officially questioned by investigators on Thursday after a night in a police cell.
They spent about eight hours in pre-trial detention in court on Friday before being allowed to leave after admitting wrongdoing and accepting sentences that would have been much harsher had they been convicted after refusing to do business.
Jagger’s defense attorney declined to comment after the hearing.
Police did not officially name the jewelry designer or Mr Hinkson, nor did they release an official statement about the incident, which resulted in him being pinned to the ground and arrested before his girlfriend was arrested.
However, shortly after Wednesday night’s incident, ahead of Friday’s court hearing, a well-informed source said: “Police have arrested two people, a man and a woman, in Ibiza.
“Around 9pm on Wednesday, police responded to a call from a restaurant about a man who allegedly was violent towards customers and staff.
“The man was gone when the police arrived.
“People in the restaurant, including staff and a manager and some customers, told officers he had been aggressive towards them and they refused to serve him any more drinks and he left.
“Then a man on the street approached police patrol cars outside and told them that a man was threatening passers-by.
“When officers approached him, he began insulting them in English with increasing aggression, refusing to identify himself and using very hostile language.
“They tried to calm him down several times and in the end he threw himself on the police, attacked one of them and had to be arrested.
“Then a woman appeared who was very aggressive, jumped on a police officer, pushed him and insulted him.
“Police managed to calm them down and then called an ambulance for the man who was acting very aggressively and in poor condition and attacked health workers and police again when the ambulance arrived.”
“At that moment, the woman re-enters the crime scene and stands on an officer before allegedly pushing and hitting him.
“Then she was also arrested.”
Other Spanish reports naming Jade Jagger as a woman arrested said she allegedly scratched a police officer.
Video footage subsequently emerged showing the arrest of Mr Hinkson, who has been dating Mick Jagger’s daughter for several weeks.
Witnesses said he behaved erratically and went to a clothing store across from La Oliva where he bought an expensive dress which he then gave to a waitress at the restaurant before the ensuing altercation on the street.
Earlier on Friday, the police union SUP, which represents more than 20,000 members, confirmed it was taking legal action of its own against Jagger and her boyfriend.
A statement said: “We are tired of seeing abuses against the police go virtually unpunished.
“SUP will file a private lawsuit against Mick Jagger’s daughter for allegedly assaulting a National Police officer in Ibiza.”
The officer injured in the altercation with Jagger is said to have sprained her wrist.
Sources confirmed that she was currently unable to work due to the injury.
Jagger was silent as she exited the courtroom through a side door before boarding a van with blacked-out windows.
