So heres the thing, the town centre here has closed the main drinking street to all traffic on a weekends, set up a side street as the taxi collection point accessible only to taxis and emergency services. So a car turns up parks up on the rank stopping the cabs from collecting, causing queues of disgruntled pissed up punters. Driver approached and asked to move, only to get a lot of abuse Taxi wardens repeatedly shout police, but the town centers guy were on refs and the town was being covered by bobbies from out lying areas and they tend to not give a toss (they don't like arresting as it keeps them out of their area longer). Taxi Warden moves in front of the car and starts to take the number to pass onto The town center police team on their return, when Mr.Angry driver drives straight at the warden hitting him as the car stops. Warden bruised and torn muscles in his leg is taken by ambulance to hospital and will be off work for a minimum of six weeks. The driver reverses and tries to go around the warden, but is stopped by a doorman from nearby club who witnessed the car hitting the warden. He got the door open and pulled the keys out. Police arrived and the driver is arrested only for sect.5 because he was gobbing off at the police, warden not spoken too, doorman not spoken too (apart from being told he had no right to stop the car leaving). Is section 5 the right charge, bearing in mind someone has sustained a serious injury? I wasn't a witness, but monitored the incident over the radio and got the rest of the details from cctv ops and from 2 of the doorstaff that witnessed it. Seems a bit off to me.
