Mr Whatley, who lives in Usk, Monmouthshire, said: ‘I couldn’t believe what was happening.Au contraire, Mr Whately. That's a foul slur on the US police.
‘The police went completely over the top – you would have thought I had robbed a bank. I was terrified when they started smashing in the window and trying to kick in the windscreen.
‘It’s something you might expect in America but not in the quiet of the British countryside.’
Simply compare this video of an endlessly patient and utmostly professional US cop, who manages not to so much as raise his voice when confronted by an obstreperous pensioner, with the antics of the Gwent mob:
Still, we should be thankful, I suppose, that men like the Gwent Police stand ready against the most heinous of criminals, shouldn't we? What was he charged with again?
Mr Whatley was found guilty of not wearing a seatbelt, failing to stop for a police officer and having tinted car windows which did not conform to legal requirements but cleared of failing to stop after an accident.Whew! Well, we can all think our lucky stars, can't we?
He also admitted having a registration plate which did not adhere to regulations.
Ya'all drive safely, now, y'hear?
