Cycle Cop Gets Owned - YouTube
This was posted by CC in the aptly named "all internet videos etc in here" thread sometime last/this week. Do keep up.
Apologies your Highness.
The funny thing is - I don't see how he could've got around the legal position. The cyclist isn't required to carry ID, or to admit who he is... so what is the policeman supposed to have done?
Not condoning it, just wondering how to fix it.
when cnuts collide........
Arrest him for the offence? ...shit loads of paperwork for a minor offence.
Well if he carries on riding like that maybe Darwin will feel his collar ???
He gets nicked for failing to provide an address to which a summons can be served - simples.
Just a quick question, why is this in CA?
Fact or are you assuming ?
The cyclist had just commited an offence, the policeman identifed S24 of the Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984,
Arrest without warrant: constables.
(1)A constable may arrest without a warrant .
(a)anyone who is about to commit an offence; .
(b)anyone who is in the act of committing an offence; .
(c)anyone whom he has reasonable grounds for suspecting to be about to commit an offence; .
(d)anyone whom he has reasonable grounds for suspecting to be committing an offence. .
(2)If a constable has reasonable grounds for suspecting that an offence has been committed, he may arrest without a warrant anyone whom he has reasonable grounds to suspect of being guilty of it. .
(3)If an offence has been committed, a constable may arrest without a warrant .
(a)anyone who is guilty of the offence; .
(b)anyone whom he has reasonable grounds for suspecting to be guilty of it. .
(4)But the power of summary arrest conferred by subsection (1), (2) or (3) is exercisable only if the constable has reasonable grounds for believing that for any of the reasons mentioned in subsection (5) it is necessary to arrest the person in question. .
(5)The reasons are .
(a)to enable the name of the person in question to be ascertained (in the case where the constable does not know, and cannot readily ascertain, the person's name, or has reasonable grounds for doubting whether a name given by the person as his name is his real name); .
(b)correspondingly as regards the person's address;
If he refuses to give his name and address he can be arrested, and charged with being a complete prick
Sounds like you were a cop
It seems to me that the copper is having a bad day, made worse by some council estate lawyer trying to be clever. Seen it before, it would be good if the cyclist had ridden off and a bicycle chase had ensued- that would have been funny.
"Resorting to violence, typical of our police!!!"
'Violence' shoving the camera away because he's sick of being filmed by a cocky little know it all "student of the law".
Gobby cyclist, I sincerely hope the cops study the video, get the text-book answer on what the bike-plod should have done and nick him properly next time. They don't usually back down (or didn't used to). An ex-cop I knew asked a driver to please move his vehicle since it was causing an obstruction, intentionally blocking another vehicle. The driver refused until he'd finished his lunch, so it progressed to move it or you'll be nicked. He refused so the driver and his vehicle were removed by the police; his vehicle was a bus.
