The incident apparently took place on the 8th March this year.

Apparently the Seargent, with full knowledge that his colleague is Jewish, deliberately dangled a pizza that contained pepperoni over his colleagues food.

As a result a piece of pepperoni then fell off the pizza on the officers food meaning they were then unable to eat it.

The hearing will take place at Sussex Police HQ in Lewes.

Officers were alerted to a man, Patrick McCabe, being asleep in the back of his car at a petrol pump at a service station in Copthorne Common Road, Copthorne, around 8.40am on Thursday, 21 November.

Two police cars arrived on the scene, one parking behind the vehicle and one in front of the vehicle. McCabe, 24 of Croydon Road in Caterham, woke up and rammed the police car parked behind his vehicle and made off from the scene.

Officers, assisted by the police helicopter, pursued McCabe who drove with excessive speed, almost collided with a transit tipper van and even drove on the wrong side of the dual carriageway.

Watch the pursuit in full below.

McCabe was tracked driving down a pedestrian path before fleeing from the vehicle and attempting to hide underneath a car in a nearby hotel carpark. He was detained by officers and charged with dangerous driving, driving without a licence, driving without insurance and two counts of criminal damage.
