arrest in holloway road
wired riot cop
cops infront of the pub
riot police advancing
man on crutches being pushed
when the event ended at six o clock, many of the participants went to the local 'coronet' pub for a drink. the large space was packed. a small group switched on a sound system for some entertainment, and the pub manager reacted astonishingly by closing the bars, refusing to serve anyone in the pub and calling the police.
as arsenal had finished playing nearby, there were a lot of very wired police on duty who turned up en masse as people were leaving the pub.
after a small altercation in the road, riot police started pushing and shoving people indiscriminately, as well as kicking and punching.
the road was completely closed off to southbound traffic for more than 40 minutes causing huge disruption in the area.
there were at the very least 4 arrests. i witnessed one completely unprovoked arrest. one woman got pushed over by advancing riot police and broke her ankle. i also witnessed one man on crutches being violently pushed by riot police.
from a small incident, police completely escalated the situation into a major incident and caused injury and made spurious and dubious arrests.
