Another Bad Cop?

"A POLICEMAN has been accused of assaulting a teenage boy and destroying a recording of the attack. PC Brian Carswell, 48, denies grabbing suspected thief David Shields, 16, by the throat and pinned him against a wall during an official interview. When three other officers entered the room at Ayr Police Station, they found Shields crying with marks on his throat. Slightly built Shields, of Ayr, claimed 15- stone Carswell assaulted him and that he had recorded it on his mobile phone."

The courts will decide.
