13-12-2012 – Police assault commuter after he fails to provide identification or travel pass (Flinders St Station, Melbourne)

Original YouTube Description:

Police officer Dean Bradley Anderson, 40, was found guilty of four counts of assault after CCTV footage shows him acting beyond his powers when restraining commuter Anton Perry who failed to provide identification or show a travel pass when requested.

Anderson argued that the action was in response to the belief he was about to be spat on, something which had occurred one month prior and caused Anderson to undergo blood tests.
