A POLICE officer engaged in trying to arrest a student during one of the anti-tuition fees demonstrations at the end of last year incriminated himself, it appears, when he apparently forgot he was wearing equipment often carried to record suspects as he chased the 20-year-old.
He detained the student, who suffered a chipped tooth during the incident on 9th December, after he breached a cordon.
The Met officer then discussed making up reasons to arrest him with two colleagues, internal investigators believe.
All three are on restricted duties and warned they face a criminal probe for conspiracy to pervert justice. They could also be sacked.
