Dorset police officer filmed threatening man with 'ticket for something'

An innocent motorist said he was left feeling "shaken up" after a police officer was filmed threatening to smash his window and give him "a ticket for something".

The officer stopped the driver in Bournemouth on 30 October as he suspected the colour of his car did not match DVLA records.

The motorist, who was arrested and de-arrested at the scene, told BBC News he believed the officer had "abused his powers".

Martyn Underhill, Police and Crime Commissioner for Dorset, said: "Some of the issues in that video do concern me but I must stress my role is not to intervene and hold police to account until their processes are finished."

Dorset Police said the officer would be "subject to management action".
