Hi, welcome to JustAnswer. My name is*****’m a barrister with 12 years of experience and I am happy to help with your question today.
Thanks for the information
The reality is that he didn’t have to do this. He just chose to exercise his discretion against you. Unfortunately he is allowed to that as that is what a discretion is.
It does seem rather excessive but if you weren’t taxed then that is an offence I’m afraid.
You can obviously try to negotiate although they tend to be fairly insistent at this stage.
I’m afraid some officers just enjoy the exercise of power.
Can I clarify anything for you?
Hopefully, I have answered your query in a way that is simple and easy to understand. If anything remains unclear, I will be more than happy to clarify it for you. In the meantime, thank you once again for using our services.
You do have the option to make a complaint about that but I wouldn't advise it. The officer will be saying that you didn't cooperate in some way and that is why he had to take that action. Whether that is true or not, he is not going to admit an assault just for the asking.
If you make a complaint, I would not be surprised if you were charged with assault on PC or an emergency worker or obstructing. They can be very childish
Good to talk to you.
It is rather unjust.
Some officers are just using their position to bully people.
But it depends on your appetite for risk.
Then you can make a complaint.
