a couple park up and nip into a shop for a few minutes, on returning to their car they notice a civil enforcement officer(ceo) writing out a pcn. the ceo tells the passenger(p) that he has just been given a ticket(with a smile).p then says 'oh you are joking, we have only been a minute'
ceo. you have been more than a minute, it is on the ticket.
p. oh you love it dont you.
ceo. (abruptly walks to towards p) no need for sarcasm sir.
p. im not being sarcastic, it is a fact.
ceo. it is an offence to threaten a ceo. would you like me to call the police sir.? (pointing at p, approaching him and repeating himself about the police).
p. what are you approaching me for. and dont wave your f%^&ing fingers at me.
the driver then stands between p and ceo and takes the ticket from the waving fingers of the ceo. 'thank you' says the ceo.
the driver tells p to get into the car.
ceo. would you like me to call the police sir
would you like me to call the police sir
p puts the items bought in the shop in the car, proceeds to get in the car.
ceo. would you like me to call the police sir.
p. i dont give a [email protected]** what you do, would you like me to knock you out.
gets in the car and they drive away.
now p has since had a visit from the local constabulary in regards to committing an offence where the ceo was abused and feared for his safety.
p is to be charged and will have to attend a magistrates court. should he plead guilty or should he fight his corner due to the ceo being antagonistic and perhaps even abusing his power.?

Your best bet is to seek legal advice, were their any witnesses other than the driver?

And I’m sorry that you have ended up in such a cruddy situation. Sounds like the ceo was a complete jobsworth who is in the wrong line of work if they can’t handle a bit of swearing!!

You can't threaten to knock someone out just because they're winding you up, it turns out.

I expect if there had been an appeal against the parking ticket it could have been successful, even if just on grounds of being there only for one minute or no previous tickets.
