Nottinghamshire Police constable charged with inflicting grievous bodily harm

A Nottinghamshire Police officer is due to appear in court charged with inflicting grievous bodily harm (GBH) upon a man who was being arrested following an incident in Nottingham city centre.

Police Constable Edward Gordon is accused of Section 20 GBH in connection with the arrest of a man in Foreman Street, Nottingham, in the early hours of 3 November 2019. The man was subsequently taken to hospital with injuries to his face.

Following a referral from the force, and a subsequent complaint, we investigated whether the officer’s use of force during the arrest was appropriate in the circumstances. Our investigation was completed in July last year (2020) and the Crown Prosecution Service authorised the charge in September.

PC Gordon will make his first appearance before Leicester Magistrates Court  today.
