Plainclothed policeman 'kicked man's head like a football'

A plainclothed police constable kicked an arrested man's head “like a football” while he was being restrained by four officers, a court heard.

 PC Edward Prince, 31, is accused of assaulting Downham man Nyron Games, following a chase on foot along Brighton Road, Purley, on November 6, 2009.

Giving evidence against her colleague PC Tina Bassett said: “I could not believe what I saw. “What I saw was completely against all ethics of being a police officer.”

My comment: Waiting for the judgement before commenting.

UPDATE 1st September 2011: Pc guilty of kicking arrested man.

A policeman was convicted today of kicking a Trinidadian drug convict while arresting him.

Pc Edward Prince was found unanimously guilty by a jury at Southwark Crown Court, in London, of intentionally kicking Nyrone Games in the face.

Police colleagues gave both prosecution and defence evidence - with officers contradicting one another forcefully about what happened.

Games's blood and saliva were found on Prince's shoe, but he said they could have come from bending down so closely to him. 

My comment: Wonder he didn't try to argue that the victim head butted his shoe.
