Man arrested for mooning speed camera acquitted in court

A terminally ill man who was arrested by six officers for bearing his backside at a mobile speed camera in Worcestershire has been found not guilty of a public order offence.

Darrell Meekcom, who has multiple system atrophy, heart disease, kidney failure and Parkinsons mooned at the van in Kidderminster in November.

His wife published a YouTube video of him being held down on the ground when Police came to arrest him later that day.

West Mercia Police said a 55-year-old was arrested on suspicion of indecent exposure and dangerous driving.

However the Mirror reports that when the case was heard at Redditch Magistrates court he was acquitted.

Two further counts of using threatening behaviour likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress were dropped by prosecutors.

He was cleared by magistrates on yesterday (August 2), who found him “not guilty of resisting arrest” and that that his “defence of self-protection has been accepted”.
