Transport officer assaulted client

The officer grabbed OD, patted him down, assaulted and handcuffed him. The officer called the police and alleged that OD was behaving offensively. The police arrested OD and took him to the police station. After watching the video footage which clearly showed that the transport officer’s allegations were false, the police released him.

OD approached O’Brien Criminal and Civil Solicitors who assisted him to sue NSW Transport and the NSW Police Force for assault, battery and false imprisonment. The matter settled, and OD received compensation.
