    What exactly does 'flipping somebody off' mean? :lolwut:

    If it's some kind of verbal or physical assault, then I would imagine so if you do it to a police officer at least.

    But how can you prove it happen (if it wasn't caught on camera) would be the logical question.

    Even if I flipped off a group of people, it is still unprovable to a third party.

    Well, plod would have to have seen you do it (and you would have had numerous warnings). They obviously wouldn't get Sherlock in to investigate an alleged 'flipping off'. So technically you can be arrested for it, but in practice its unlikely you ever would.

    Eye witness testimony. If taken to court it's for the jury to decide.

    That's the flaw with eye witness testimony and that it is why it is unreliable. But with more than one eye witness confirming the incident, it's more than likely you'll be on the **** end of the stick.
