Eric Joyce Explains Arrest

Eric Joyce has been in touch following his latest arrest:

“The account you have is pretty much it. Unpleasant and unhelpful Edinburgh airport baggage man (I gave him my flight and seat no, 18D, at least six times but he said he was busy and would be back shortly); a ludicrously over-reacting transport cop who’d already identified me and made it clear he’d be taking ‘no nonsense’, when I was simply asking for my ‘phone back (the Telegraph is saying i was trying to get back onto the ‘plane, for some reason).  I said I’d simply leave and one cop said; ‘best thing’ and the other said ‘not ’til I let you’.  I replied pointing out that he wasn’t letting me report my ‘phone missing nor letting me leave. At that point he arrested me with entirely un-necessary physical force.  

I’ve now seen the press reports and I’m literally astonished at the police.  I was not charged, not interviewed, did not even have statements taken, was not examined and when I was released the cops said they were taking no further action at that point. They said it was up to the Procurator Fiscal to decide if any further action was in the public interest.   Now their press folk are telling media I’ll appear in court – you obviously only appear in court if you’ve been charged. Perhaps they’d like to clarify.  Unlike me, ‘phone still in transit.”

Over to them…
