Video records officer arrested for drink driving

A British police support officer has been banned for driving for 12 months for drink driving after being arrested by officers he called to help when a driver he pulled over became abusive.

Andrew Seston pulled over Irfan Mehrban who then recorded the dramatic events as they unfolded when police officers arrived.

Mr Seston called for help from others officers when Mr Mehrban began arguing with him.

Mr Mehrban says: "Can I have him arrested for drink-driving? I want him arrested for drink-driving.

"We have a police officer getting done for drink-driving outside Lane End, outside the community school. Is he arrested, yeah? He’s in the panda car getting arrested.

"Sorry mate, you shouldn’t have started on me, innit?"

Mr Seston was arrested last April. He was banned from driving after admitting drinking two bottles of red wine the day before, the MailOnline reports.

He resigned from the Thames Valley Police and was banned from driving for 12 months.

In Britain, a police community support officer are support staff employed, directed and managed by their police force.

They were uniforms but the position is designed to free officers for other duties.

Mr Mehrban told the MailOnline he was shocked when he smelled alcohol on the officer.

"He shouldn't be stopping people if he's drunk, and he definitely shouldn't have been driving," he said.
