Officer unrepentant over video pay out
A former Gwent PC whose arrest of a pensioner was videoed and shown on the internet has been awarded at least £430,000 damages after winning a case for constructive dismissal.
A leaked video showing Mike Baillon smashing the windows of a 4x4 vehicle after the driver had refused to stop was watched 30m times on You Tube.
The compensation consists of pension payments and lost earnings.
Gwent Police said it was disappointed with the outcome.
