Retired Superintendent of Police, Altermoth ‘Parro’ Campbell, says he’ll be consulting his lawyers in relation to a controversial incident last week in which he was pepper sprayed by a Police Constable.
Mr. Campbell is also chiding National Security Minister, Dr. Horace Chang, for saying it appears the actions of the Constable were reasonable.
The Retired Superintendent says he’ll be giving a formal account to the Police Inspectorate about what transpired.
Retired Superintendent Campbell says he feared for his life during the incident.
Mr. Campbell says he was happy for the intervention of a Senior Policeman who drove to the scene shortly after he was pepper sprayed.
A video of the incident has gone viral on social media.The video shows the Police Constable twice dispersing pepper spray into the eyes of retired Superintendent Campbell.
Mr. Campbell was stopped by the Constable in a section of the Corporate Area. The video shows the retired Policeman telling the Constable that he does not have his driver’s license in his possession.
The Constable then demanded that the retired Superintendent exit the motor vehicle he was driving to be taken into custody. Retired Superintendent Campbell declined and was then pepper sprayed by the Constable.
