Barry George, 48 – who was acquitted just three weeks ago of killing the BBC Crimewatch presenter – was approached by two officers in a patrol car near his home in North London.That'll probably sound familiar to a certain junkie singer...
The male and female officers used stop-and-search powers after Mr George was seen ‘hanging around’ parked cars carrying a holdall.
He was searched by the male PC, who found nothing suspicious, and was allowed to leave when the officers were called away to a traffic accident.
Mr George claims the two officers said they were going to search him because he looked at them in a ‘funny way’.
He has told a friend the WPC behaved aggressively towards him and told him he was going to be searched by her male colleague.
And he says the officers failed to issue him with a written explanation of why he was stopped, as required by police regulations.
