For the apprehension of a disabled pensioner, it seemed a little excessive.
A police officer jumped on the bonnet of retired businessman Robert Whatley’s car and kicked the windscreen while another hit the window with his baton 15 times until it smashed.
They then dragged the 70-year-old, who has a heart condition and recently recovered from a stroke, from his £60,000 Range Rover.
Mr Whatley, who lives in Usk, Monmouthshire, said: ‘I couldn’t believe what was happening.
‘The police went completely over the top – you would have thought I had robbed a bank. I was terrified when they started smashing in the window and trying
to kick in the windscreen.
