LEAF IT OUT! Officer is sacked over naked prank
A PROBATION supervisor has been sacked after video emerged of a NAKED man using a leaf blower in a graveyard.
Anthony Hutchinson was spared jail in June but ordered to carry out 120 hours of unpaid work on the community payback scheme after leading police on a 130mph chase through Dorset.
One clip shows the 25-year-old wearing a priest’s robes and addressing the camera, while another appears to show him in the graveyard with his trousers around his ankles.
A series of videos and photos on social media show Hutchinson larking around with his fellow community service workers.
He captions one: “Mine and Charlies (sic) last day on community service together. been emotional bro. Hope you commit some crime soon so we can be together again haha [sic]’.
Probation workers’ union NAPO said Working Links, the company in charge of the community payback scheme, was “unfit for purpose”.
NAPO said it had “serious concerns regarding Working Links and the service they are currently delivering”.
A spokesman added: “They are not able to deliver even a basic probation service and are letting down the communities they serve.”
NAPO general secretary Ian Lawrence described Hutchinson’s actions as “appalling”.
Working Links operates the Dorset, Devon and Cornwall Community Rehabilitation Company (CRC), which delivers community payback for low and medium-risk offenders in the South West.
It said the video was an isolated incident and confirmed a supervisor has since been sacked.
