PC Hayes fabricated an offence (section 5 public order offence).
He then proceeded to grab hold of the victim without any warning when the victim was on his own property that the victim had forewarned the Police not to encroach. The Police Officer, PC Hayes then grabbed and assaulted the victim, pepper spraying him at point blank range in they eyes. PC Hayes then alleged the victim was resisting arrest, but his Police colleague confirmed in court that the victim did not resist therefore proving PC Hayes was intentionally lying (committing perjury) to cover himself for his illegal actions.
After pepper spraying the victim, violently tackled the victim to the ground, the victim was struggling to breathe due to the pepper spray and unable to see. PC Hayes then sat on the victims chest, further restricting his already difficult breathing. To the horror of the victims wife, children and aged parents, PC Hayes then put his hands around the victims throat and began strangling him. His colleague was trying to reason with violent PC Hayes who was ignoring all attempts to control him.
When questioned in Chorley magistrates court, PC Hayes admitted he strangled the victim but made the excuse that he did this ‘in case the victim attempted to spit at him”. When questioned if the victim had tried to spit at him or showed any signs of or attempt to spit, PC Hayes stated NO. Hayes confirmed there was no evidence of this , his justification was that he had been spat at before and he didn’t want it to happen again!
This concurs that PC Hayes has admitted assault but not charged!
The victim was acquitted of all malicious charges brought by Lancashire Police. All charges were maliciously brought without any CPS advice. The CPS barrister stated that if CPS had been asked for advice, they would not have authorised a charge.
Police have been accused of bringing the charges maliciously (malicious prosecution) simply due the the fact the victim ‘outed’ a Lancashire Police Informer, Paul Turner.
A civil lawsuit is currently in progress, Police have offered a substantial sum of money to avoid a trial. The victim has refused the offer and expects a fully admission of liability and would prefer to go to trial where the full details of the allegations can be aired in public.
