Police hold lawyer without bike lights

A lawyer is to lodge a formal complaint about the ‘insulting and aggressive manner’ in which she and her friend were treated by police on Saturday night after being stopped for cycling without lights, reports Monday’s AD newspaper.

‘We do not object to the fine we were given but do have something to say about the way we were treated,’ A. Bos told the paper. Bos and her friend were held in a police cell for two hours on Saturday night.
