Mayor of London’s police adviser headbutted Pc
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.
