A British Metropolitan Police Inspector was slapped on the rear by a female subject at a Carnival street festival- and he arrested her for it.
Inspector Owen Pyle of the Southwark Police took to Twitter after Monday’s incident at the Notting Hill Carnival, telling the whole world about the ordeal.
“While dealing with an incident at Carnival yesterday a woman thought it’d be funny to slap my bum. She soon regretted it when I arrested her,” he wrote. “I don’t come to work to be sexually assaulted while doing my job. That kind of behaviour is unacceptable.”

In follow-up comments, Pyle would go on to say that the woman was likely a bit tipsy.
“I think alcohol played a part, [to be honest],” he noted.
Pyle received mixed reviews for his “detain and publicly shame” procedure, ranging from individuals who applauded his efforts, while others felt the response was heavy-handed and took up police resources that could be better used keeping the peace.
“I bet the custody officer was well pleased one of their valuable cells was filled with this master criminal,” one user scoffed.
“I hope you get all the support you need to get over this terrible incident,” another chimed in. “Out of interest, how long were you away from the frontline whilst dealing with her?”
The authorities would later release a statement on the matter.
“At 21:45hrs on Monday, 27 August a 26-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of being drunk and disorderly in Westbourne Park Road, W2,” the statement read. “She was taken to a central London police station, where she was issued a dispersal order requiring her to leave the Carnival footprint.”
Inspector Pyle is known for posting all sorts of things that might come off as a bit silly. Less than a day ago, he retweeted a post by the Metropolitan Taskforce (@MetTaskforce), who praised a K-9 named Sherpa, a savvy hound who was brought out to find a kitchen knife discarded in a foot chase.
Great start to the shift by PD Sherpa, called to @MPSSouthwark to search for discarded weapons after a foot chase. Very quickly indicated down a narrow gap between a fence and a wall. One knife found and one arrested. #policedogs #knifeoffthestreet pic.twitter.com/zb2DrXdtKR
