Two policemen were suspended after a disabled pensioner claimed he was left terrified by officers who smashed his car window after catching him driving without a seatbelt.
When stroke victim Robert Whatley, 70, was pulled over in his Range Rover, he expected a brief discussion with the officers.
But he claims he was forced to cover his face and was showered with glass as one officer jumped o More..n to the bonnet and kicked his windscreen while another repeatedly attacked the window with a baton.
The ensuing action was caught on film by a police camera placed on the patrol car’s dashboard.
The police video, released by Mr Whatley’s solicitor, shows an officer taking a run up with a telescopic ‘Asp’ baton.
