Cell assault officer faces sack

A policeman is facing the sack after being filmed on CCTV injuring a woman by throwing her into a cell
Video footage showed Sergeant Mark Andrews dragging Pamela Somerville across the floor of Melksham Police Station, Wiltshire, before shoving her into the holding room.

Ms Somerville, then 57, had been arrested after being found sleeping in her car and allegedly refusing a breathalyser test.

She hit her head on the ground when she was thrown into the cell and sustained a gash above her eye

  • The stupid bitch had obviously been drink-driving, but it still doesn't excuse her treatment.

  • Sure it was excessive. But I doubt I could be on a job like that for two weeks without losing my cool with some of those jokers.

    • Your obviously dont understand what i said.
      Im not supporting the cops actions, and not saying she deserved to be incarcerated.
      But whats the point in struggling like she did?
      If she complied, she wouldnt of been thrown around.

  • well f me i retract my post !!!!
    There are also various charges relating to being "in charge" of a vehicle, but not driving or attempting to drive it. These do not carry mandatory disqualification, although the penalties can still be severe, typically 10 penalty points. The police often take a very broad view of attempting to drive - for example a man who had left his car in a pub car park, had too much to drink, and decided to retrieve his briefcase from the boot before phoning for a More..

  • The day will dawn when the UK police will ask why are we not respected by the public any more, well that will be the day all these transgressions should be played back to them, If she had died as a result of that would it have been classified as death by natural causes like Ian Tomlinson, and so many others?... Just asking.

  • Even a small cut in the scalp will bleed like that. He might have been a bit short-temperde, but it's her own fault for getting piss-pants drunk like that. She would have bled a hell of a lot more if she would have driven off the road rip-roaring drunk.

  • I don't mind reposts. But this one gets featured at the same time as the original video so that two identical files are presented back to back on the portal page. Super fail by the mods.

  • Asleep in her car? refused a breathalizer?
    They must have woke her up for that, so obviously she was not driving. sounds ok to me so far.
    In the station the sound went out on the cctv ? Y? was that some attempt to doctor cctv footage? thrown against concrete wall yes that will open up an eyebrow and bleed like fuck. what was sickening was himself in there afterwards, trying to look concerned as he well should have. i think he saw his career disappearing in front of his eyes. charge him as any o More..

  • The video has been cut and doesn't show her unconscious on the floor and bleeding afterwards. Furthermore the video has been darkened.

    • At no stage did he hit her. He frog marched her to the cell and let go of her. She was obviously extremely drunk and just fell on her face. He was obviously reckless in his behaviour, as he should have anticipated that she was too drunk to put her hands out and stop herself falling on her face...hence the conviction for assault!

    • Russia, the bastion of human rights.

      The Brit cops was an idiot thug. I hope the lady can collect some damages.

      Back to Russia..

      In russian jail, with this kind of treatment, the prisoners would say "thank you" for being so kind.

    • We dont arrest women for no reason and beat them up trust me, I know.
      Thats what you do in america (yea you do, I saw many videos). Here, the only ones getting beat the shit out of are thugs and gangsters, not women and little girls like in america.
