Six British soldiers who have been charged with assaulting an off-duty New York City police officer are expected to appear in court this week, according to a police spokesman.
The six soldiers were arrested early Friday morning after the 30-year-old police officer was injured outside a bar in Manhattan's Murray Hill neighborhood, said New York Police Department spokesman Sgt. Thomas Antonetti. A verbal altercation quickly escalated into a physical fight, he said.
The cause is still unclear, he added.FULL STORY
Lol @ rupert, its hooligans.
Canadians would never do this.
And if they were French soldiers, they would have surrendered to one off duty NYPD officer.
While one Irish soldier would have attacked six cops, if they insulted his Mom or something.
" The cause was unclear." Perhaps outside a bar and early morning sheds some light on that.
6 Brit soldiers against one NYPD cop? That was typical ' use of overwhelming force' military strategy, borrowed from us perhaps?
but they are from Britain our bosom ally. let them go with a tap on the wrist. They may be needed somewhere in the M.East.
Took 6 guys to take the NY cop down? NY strong.
not so blimey typical limeys...lol
Lol @ Rascal, love your accent.
