I have done a citizens arrest in Newcastle about 30 years ago, a scumbag hit an old man and stole his briefcase, I chased him down Northumberland St before catching him, he hit a woman an knocked her out who tried to help before I got to him. The court was a farce, usual excuses, solicitor trying to bully prosecution witnesses. He kept trying to cut me off, so I actually asked the magistrate if he wanted me to answer the question he said he did I also asked the magistrate to ask the solicitor to conduct himself in a civil manner or I will conduct myself in the same way, He was admonished and calmed himself down. The accused asked for 8 other offences to be taken into consideration and still wasn't sent down but got a suspended sentence and community order. It felt like a waste of time to me.
