It does seem that Nanny's state police force is getting a little bit full of itself, as Andrew Carter discovered to his cost recently.
Mr Carter observed a police van reversing the wrong way up a one-way street in Bristol, in fact it almost knocked him over, and rather unwisely challenged it.
He was told by one of the cuntstables driving the van to:
"F*** off, this is police business."
What precisely was this urgent police business?
Errmm...they were on the way to the chip shop!
Mr Carter then photographed the police van outside the chip shop.
Can you guess what happened next?
Yes, that's right, PC Aqil Farooq told him he was under arrest for assault, resisting arrest and being drunk and disorderly.
Mr Carter was then handcuffed and bundled into the back of the van, locked in a police cell for five hours, forced to give a sample of his DNA and had his fingerprints taken. After his release he spent a week on bail, before he was he told he would not be charged.
PC Farooq and a woman officer claimed they needed to visit the takeaway shop to view CCTV footage.
Farooq was made to apologise in person to Mr Carter but he still has his job.
Avon and Somerset deputy chief constable Rob Beckley wrote to Mr Carter, apologising for the officer's 'totally unacceptable' behaviour.
Errmmm...is that it then?...a false arrest was made, ie the police lied, and all that happens is that an apology is made?
