A police officer has been convicted of assaulting a schoolboy after stopping the vehicle’s driver in Alperton for using a mobile phone.
PC Karl Bartlett, 42, of the Territorial Support Group, denied committing a “vicious, sustained and unprovoked attack” on the 14-year-old after he pulled over drive Lee Rosier, 24, in Hanger Lane on March 1 last year.
