The Daily Telegraph - - News -

A STOP and search ad­viser to the Mayor of Lon­don head­but­ted a po­lice of­fi­cer when he in­ter­vened as a friend was ar­rested, a court heard.

Ken­neth Hinds, 59, who has also worked with the Metropoli­tan Po­lice, stepped in as Ja­mal Thomas Edwards was de­tained on sus­pi­cion of drugs of­fences.

A court heard his friend was calm un­til Hinds ques­tioned the of­fi­cers about the ar­rest.

Thomas Edwards then be­gan shout­ing and “re­sist­ing” ar­rest, the court was told, and Hinds as­saulted an of­fi­cer in the strug­gle that fol­lowed.

Hinds, from north Lon­don, was con­victed of as­sault on a po­lice of­fi­cer and ob­struct­ing po­lice af­ter a judge said his ac­tions “could have gone hor­ri­bly wrong for ev­ery­one”.

He was or­dered to pay £670 costs and handed a 12-month con­di­tional dis­charge.
