Dorset police force yobs to buy pump and reinflate car tyres they’d vandalised

DIRECT policing in action down in Weymouth, Dorset, where three yobbos in their mid-20s who let down car tyres were taken by police to Asda, encouraged to buy a pump and use it to reinflate them.

A Dorset Police spokesman says the men were “under the influence of alcohol”.

“Officers advised the offenders that they needed to re-inflate the tyres and they escorted them to the supermarket to buy a foot pump. They returned to the scene and police remained to ensure the tyres were re-inflated. Unfortunately the pump broke so the men were made to leave notes on the remaining vehicles advising the owners to check their tyre pressures. Details of the three men were recorded. Police vehicle examiners returned in the morning to help re-inflate the tyres of the remaining vehicles. Two of the offenders returned to assist them.”

That Olympic sprit keeps on rolling…
