Spencer was indicted on August 2, 2021 and returned to appear in court.
Investigating Officer Sergeant Robert Prout of the Oxford-based Stronghold team said: “This was an unprovoked racially motivated attack on a police officer working to keep people safe during the economy. nocturnal.
“In addition, Spencer was looking to sell quantities of drugs on the streets of Oxford.
“Drug trafficking has extremely damaging effects on our communities and we will not tolerate those who see fit to profit from such activity.
“We will continue to work with our Stronghold team to bring offenders like Spencer to justice and get harmful and noxious drugs off the streets.”
