A British police officer is under investigation after being filmed smashing the window of an innocent car driver.
The policeman, from London’s Metropolitan police smashes his baton multiple times against the vehicle’s side and front windows before using a pocket knife to cut through the glass.

All the time, the man inside is insisting he has done nothing wrong. A statement on the Met Police’s website said an investigation has been launched but that the officer believed the driver of the car could have been a wanted man.
In fact, the force admitted, this turned out not to be the case.
