A Met policeman who resigned after reversing his cop car into a post - would have been sacked for trying to cover it up.
A misconduct hearing heard that while on duty on October 22 2018, former PC Lesser caused damage to a police car by reversing into a post and “chose to conceal how the damage had been caused”.
It was alleged that he behaved in an “aggressive, discourteous and threatening way towards a junior colleague” with regard to the incident, said Scotland Yard.
Lesser, who was attached to the North West Command Unit, breached standards of professional behaviour in respect of honesty & integrity; authority, respect and courtesy and demonstrated discreditable conduct.
He resigned on March 7.
