Ian Puddick Was Arrested & Handcuffed Yesterday (Monday 23rd May 2011)
On Monday evening around 5PM Ian Puddick was driving his van through Muswell Hill, North London when without warning he was pulled over by unmarked police car.
What happened next beggars belief! Without any warning and without being read his rights, Ian Puddick was handcuffed to his car despite him pleading with the Constables not to handcuff him. These pleas fell on deaf ears!
Apparently this “arrest” was on the instructions of some “higher” police authority (which we suspect to be City of London Police) and it was this “higher authority” who INSISTED that Ian was pulled over and INSISTED that he be handcuffed.
Ian was told that the reason he was stopped and handcuffed was:-
Ian Puddicks vehicle was “allegedly” stolen
The Constable then went off to do some checks based on the information that Ian Puddick had provided and subsequently returned. In the meantime Ian was texting and Tweeting friends on Twitter and Facebook to let everyone know that he had been arrested again.
Once the officer returned Ian Puddick asked him if this was in reference to his court case regarding his website href=”http://www.policexpenses.co.uk to which the Constable asked for more information regarding this.
Ian Puddick then proceed to explain what was going in reference to the ongoing court case with City of London Police and when the Constable heard this he was visibly shocked and very sympathetic towards Ian.
Eventually the checks that the Constable carried out proved that Ian Puddick was telling the truth and that his van wasn’t stolen. And so it appears this is just another round of City of London Police running around like headless chickens, getting in a flap because they are so very very desperate to scare Ian Puddick away from this upcoming court case on 15th June at Westminster Magistrates Court, Horseferry Road, London at 10:00 AM that are now trying every scare tactic in the book to harass and intimidate Ian Puddick.
However, all that their flapping about confirms is that they are deeply worried by this court case (we think they know they are on a hiding to nothing) and the fact they keep trying to intimidate Ian Puddick is only further confirmation of our suspicions in this regard.
Ian Puddick would like to state that he holds no ill-feeling towards the Constable who arrested him, who, when they found out what was “really” going on behaved brilliantly with Ian. Both of them apologised to Ian for handcuffing him and one of the Constables wished him the best of luck with his case against City of London Police.
