Hero Cabbie Gets 30-Pound Fine
Which I am pretty sure will be waived. I did find his description of the fight quite interesting:
"The guy in the passenger seat was wearing a white T-shirt. He got out carrying what looked like a petrol bomb and seconds later the Jeep was in flames.
"Then he kicked and punched a man to the ground before punching a policeman square in the face. That's when I saw red. That sort of thing just isn't on.
"I told my passenger to run for her life, then I went for the man in the T-shirt and managed to skelp him in the face. I followed it up by booting him twice.
"By that time some other people had joined in and it seemed like the T-shirt guy was trying to get back into the Jeep.
"Then the driver got out of the car. He was already in flames. It was obvious he was the real psycho of the pair.
"Someone was hosing him down but the flames seemed to jump up again just as it looked like they had gone out.
"It was obvious the driver wanted into the boot of the Jeep for something and I was worried about what it was. I thought it must be a gun.
"He was going crazy, just lashing out at everyone and babbling p*sh in a foreign language the whole time.
"I've heard people say since that he was shouting 'Allah!' but I didn't hear that. It just sounded like a lot of c**p to me.
"I ran for the guy and punched him twice in the face with pretty good right hooks.
"Then I kicked him with full force right in the balls but he didn't go down. He just kept on babbling his rubbish.
Not used to calling a guy who kicked somebody in the nuts a hero, but it applies in this case.
