    UK Policeman Under Investigation After Video Shows Him Assaulting Man In Wheelchair

    Norfolk Police is facing scrutiny following a video that surfaced on social media, showing a policeman allegedly assaulting a man in a wheelchair outside a shop in Great Yarmouth. The incident, which occurred on Monday evening, has sparked an investigation into the use of force by the officer.

    According to reports from the BBC, the video captured the policeman delivering several punches to the disabled man, prompting public outrage and concern over the level of force used. The man in his 30s, who was in the wheelchair, was arrested on suspicion of public order offenses and assaulting an emergency worker. Norfolk Police stated that the man had been “verbally abusive” and had threatened the officer with a bottle.

    Chief Inspector Matt Dyson addressed the public’s concerns, acknowledging the gravity of the situation and assuring that it would be thoroughly investigated. “We recognise the public concern around the level of force used in this incident and this will form part of our investigation,” Chief Inspector Dyson stated.

    The incident was witnessed by a 43-year-old woman working nearby, who described the man in the wheelchair as dancing and singing before the altercation with the police officer. “He was trying to get up with a bottle of beer in hand and I think the police guy thought he was going to throw the bottle at him. Then you see in the video the police guy punched him,” she recounted.

    Justin Fenn, a shop manager in the area, provided additional details from CCTV footage, noting that the man appeared confrontational and was shouting and screaming at the officer before the altercation escalated.
