Enemy 45 Posted November 18, 2014 Share Posted November 18, 2014 This officer claims that the man in question looked at him and gave him the 'finger'. It's an arrestable offence under the Police and Criminal Evidence Act according to the officer. The officer then proceeds to aggressively walk towards a bystander who was filming the incident and grabs his phone for no reason. Notice how the arresting officer doesn't state which section of PACE he is enforcing. Also, the arrested man was apparently free to go after sitting in the van for an hour. Pointless. Do officers lack so much discretion that they are willing to arrest someone for something so petty (if it even happened) or are some just not kept busy enough?
