I recently dealt with a job and I thought I was assaulted, but in the end the charge was resisting arrest, which ok I was not best pleased but at least the guy was going to court for it.
I checked on the result the other day and blow me the CPS withdrew the resist arrest.
The matter was withdrawn with no consultation with me or the other officer involved.
I am new to the job and was totally disheartened by this result.
I am just wondering if I have any redress on this matter and if I would be in my rights to speak to the CPS to ask the question why they seemed it was fit to withdraw the resist arrest.
Just to give you the back ground.
A male was wanted for FTA I went to his address initially put the first cuff on and he then decided to kick off and I had a struggle with him that resulted in me hitting my arm into a door frame.
I must admit it was not a bad injury just some swelling and bruising, but he also set his Bull Mastiff on me and I had to withdraw from the property or I was going to be bitten by the dog.
Eventually he came out of the address after another patrol attended and was then taken to custody.
Any help on this matter would be greatly appreciated.
