AN American sailor who hit a police officer and bit an innocent bystander while drunk on a night out in Gibraltar has been ordered to pay a £500 fine.

Juvenal Ramirez, 23, a crew member on the US Navy’s nuclear submarine USS New Hampshire, will also face disciplinary action following the incident in Irish Town.

The submarine had arrived on the Rock last week as part of a scheduled stop-off to allow its 160 crew members some relaxation time.
