PCSO arrested for drink-drive on duty

Any other 'PCSO issues' that do not fit in to the other forums. Recruitment of PCSOs, day to day PCSO duties, questions about law, joining the regular police, becoming a special, anything else remotely PCSO orientated!!

PCSO arrested for drink-drive on duty

This dramatic video shows how a Police Community Support Officer who pulled over a driver was then arrested himself for being twice the drink-drive limit - by officers he had called for back-up.

PCSO Andrew Seston signalled for motorist Irfan Mehrban to stop his vehicle outside a school in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, then called for assistance when the driver began arguing with him.

But when his colleagues arrived they suspected 44-year-old Seston had been drinking, and breathalysed him - finding that he was over the limit, before arresting him and taking him away

They are not dealing with one of their own though.

So a PCSO isn't part of the police family then?

Yep, but luckily not a PC - which would be "dealing with one of their own".

Irrespective of the above a matter such as this simply cannot be ignored and not be dealt with...

There are all-sorts of questions about the preamble to this arrest but the fact remains and it is a slam dunk!!!

Who the bloody hell is he on the phone to!

I completely agree Dark Lord. If you are stupid enough to be drunk on duty, then you will have to suffer the consequences.
