The Englishman fought on the ground and handcuffed “after breaking the coronavirus curfew in Spain” – World News

This is the moment when a British man who allegedly broke the curfew rules of Spain on the coronavirus was wrestled on the ground and handcuffed by the police.

The footage was taken by a resident from his balcony in the capital of Palma.

The British can be heard shouting “Get off, get off” while the Spanish man who records the accident assures other spectators that the two men fighting with him are the police.

Spanish state of emergency rules only allow people to go out on the street for one of a few reasons, including visiting a supermarket, bank or chemist or going to and from work.

The police became suspicious when he saw the man walking slowly on the sidewalk but then hid behind the bushes when he saw them.

According to the Spanish press, the officers asked him for his documents and although at first it seemed that he intended to collaborate, he then became agitated, pushed one of the policemen and fled.

They then chased, eventually reaching the Briton, who is said to be around 25 years old.

It is assumed that he therefore attacked another officer.

The man, who was brought under control, was arrested and accused of violating the state of emergency, of attacking the police, the resistance and the injuries.

Spain has been in a state of blockade for two weeks in a national emergency.

The man was later taken away by the officers
