Reluctant hero? Police officer denies assaulting race relations adviser with stun gun

A police officer has denied assaulting a race relations adviser who was allegedly shot with a stun gun.

PC Claire Boddie appeared at Taunton magistrates court to face a charge of assault by beating contrary to section 39 of the Criminal Justice Act 1988. The charge arises from an incident in which Judah Adunbi, 63, was allegedly shot with the stun gun in Easton, Bristol, on 14 January.
