THIS is the moment a TV builder charged with assaulting two police officers appears to be dragged out of his car and beaten by a cop with a “metal bar”.
Huntley Thawe, 40, says he was punched and pepper-sprayed by cops as he sat in his Citroen van with his two kids over the weekend.
The video showing some of the incident had gone viral last night with more than 41,000 people watching it online.
Huntley, who regularly featured on the Channel Four show Renovation Game, was involved in a domestic dispute when he was filmed being hit with the baton.
His young children, aged just six and nine, are also said to have got pepper spray on their clothes following the police brutality.
West Mercia police confirmed that Mr Thawe had been arrested and charged with willing obstruction of a highway, obstructing or resisting a constable in the execution of their duty and two counts of assaulting a constable in execution of their duty.
No officer in the video footage can be seen to be hurt in any way, the only person that appears to be at harm is Mr Thawe.
