    Stephen Beerling was arrested and held for 12 hours after coming to the aid of a mother and baby in distress

    A one-legged Royal Navy veteran was arrested after he rescued his neighbour from being harassed by two men.

    Stephen Beerling, 52, dialled 999 and raced to help the women and her baby after hearing screams during the night.

    But he was arrested when officers spotted a retractable truncheon he had picked up in case he had to protect himself.

    Mr Beerling, a Liberal Democrat councillor, was arrested, locked up for 12 hours and charged with possessing an offensive weapon.

    Bass-ackwards cops once again. I'll be the arresting officer was under 30. Just a guess.

    All weapons are offensive and defensive. YOu can't define any weapon one way or another.

    WTF is wrong with Brittain? What retards. The only thing offensive about that weapon, is the fact that it's not a Glock, or is unlikey to severely incapacitate the real criminals. :mad:


    Yobs threw rocks at his house for years. But the father who fought back is arrested

    For more than two years, Sydney Davis's house has been under siege from youths throwing stones.

    After two hours of bombardment in the latest attack and no sign of the police, the 65-year-old retired builder decided enough was enough.

    As a particularly large missile landed in his kitchen, he grabbed a plank of wood from the garden and ran towards the gang to scare them away.

    Taking a stand: Sydney Davis and son Jimmy, five with a rock thrown by thugs. He got the wood to scare them

    The police arrived just in time - to arrest Mr Davis for possession of an offensive weapon.

    Arrest the guy who's trying to protect his, and his neighbors kids. Pretty smart if you ask me. :rolleyes:
