A POLICE officer was punched and later threatened with having his “piggy nose” wiped off and his “throat slit” as he detained a man in Bolton, England.
In shock footage posted on social media, the man – who cannot be named for legal reasons – told a Police officer he would “wipe off his piggy b*stard nose” off and “slit his throat”.
Whilst the man, who has a string of convictions, was being detained by FIVE coppers for allegedly threatening someone who “owed him money” – the male was asked by a female cop if he had any bladed weapons on him.
He repsponded: “Yea, i’ve got one in my pocket … I’ve got a Stanley Knife… I’ll slice your throat!”
“Do you know when I get out of this and you turn up at court.. I’m gonna slice your face” added the male being apprehended.
“You little f*cking bastard”
“Put that on me charge sheet yea!”
“[NAME REDACTED FOR LEGAL REASONS] is gonna wipe your piggy b*stard nose off”
He was later taken to the cells and is expected to appear in court soon.
