A thug who ram raided a Hackney police car with his mobility scooter and then bit an officer on the hand has been fined.
Anthony Walker, 31, smashed a window at the Princess of Wales public house, just after 1am on Sunday, October 19.
A witness claimed he had smashed the window in a temper because he couldn’t find the keys to the scooter.
Police were called to the pub in Leabridge Road, Lower Clapton, to find Walker was agitated when they tried to talk with him.
He then drove his mobility scooter towards them and collided with the rear bumper of their marked police car.
