Here’s another one for the British police are screwed up files.
It all started when Daniel Horne was out with some friends, and got a flat tire. He got out of the car, and started walking down the road looking for help. Someone thought he stole the car, so called the police, and they came in a big hurry. The car came onto the sidewalk and ran over Horne’s foot.
The police officer quickly figured out the root of the misunderstanding, apologized, took Horne to the hospital and stayed with him through the whole ordeal. He even drove him home afterwards. Then, he looked at him, and said, “I’m sorry, but I have to do this to cover myself,” and wrote him out a ticket for 80 pounds for denting his car!
Pardon? That police officer has to have the biggest balls in the universe! He drove his cruiser up onto the sidewalk, crushed this guy’s foot, the guy’s foot is still severely messed up and is in a special cast, the guy can’t work because of his injury, and now the cop is charging the guy for denting his poor vehicle? Wow.
Thankfully, Horne is fighting the fine and suing the station because he can’t work because of the damage to his foot. I hope he wins, and that police officer gets fired!
