Police had been on a patrol of Barrow town centre at around 1.25am on February 23.
Bell, 18, was seen banging on the door of a house in Fenton Street and police stopped and intervened. Mrs Lisa Hine, prosecuting, said when police arrived they heard a woman telling him to go away, PC Fiona Cubiss attempted to speak to her but Bell then made a dash for the door.
PC Matthew Simpson attempted to restrain him but was punched in the chest, prompting the officer to take Bell to the ground.
During the struggle he kicked PC Cubiss, grabbed PC Simpson’s testicles and after being handcuffed and after leg restraints were fitted spat at Sergeant Alan McNulty as he was put in the police van.
Mrs Hine said in Barrow police station Bell retrieved a lighter and set fire to the restraints.
Miss Karen Templeton, defending, told the court Bell was working hard to turn his life around.
Magistrates warned Bell he could be jailed when he appears in Furness Magistrates’ Court on March 25 for sentence.
