Not clear if armed police were actually required here, or if they just happened to be armed.

But The Lincolnite thinks that detail is worth reporting, although it was just an 'eyewitness' report :?


Lincoln taxi driver arrested over sexual assault on female passenger

https://thelincolnite.co.uk/2021/10/lin ... passenger/

Police enquiries are ongoing

A 36-year-old taxi driver in Lincoln has been arrested after allegedly sexually assaulting a female passenger by touching her legs without her consent.

The incident was reported to Lincolnshire Police at 8.45am on Sunday, October 10, and it is believed the incident happened in the early hours of that morning.

An eyewitness told The Lincolnite they saw the man being “arrested by firearms officers” on Yarborough Road at around 12.10pm on Sunday.

A spokesperson for Lincolnshire Police said: “A female entered a taxi and the driver was reported to have touched her legs without her consent.

“A 36-year-old man was arrested in connection with the incident and has been released on bail. Enquiries are still ongoing.”

Suspect the latter.

sounds like a bit of an over reaction from the boys in blue BUT take it from me Lincolnshire police HATE taxi drivers big time ! so any opportunity to use excessive force against one is plausible

Take it from me, complete and utter tosh from edders 23. We in Lincoln have an excellent relationship with Lincolnshire police. No one seems to know anything about this case, nor should they. The L/O will not confirm or deny if any action has been taken, nor should he.

In my experience, the only people who have issues with the police are people that have issues abiding by the law. :shock: :)

The police change areas so often I'm surprised they are in place long enough to gain a hatred of any local business.

The police that dealt with this taxi driver just happened to be armed, rather than the driver being dealt with by armed police.
