Your patrolling a busy home football match outside a local public house (located on private land) at which point an MOP begins filming the door staff. He is told rather loudly "NO PICTURES PLEASE" and asks if he is on private property. He is told that he is not on private property and carries on filming. He is then told that he is on private property and as a result the bouncer moves the camera away. The cameraman shakes a fist at a member of door staff and says "If you do that again, you're gonna get punched" before begrudgingly leaving the land. A colleague calls the man's attention and he carries on walking ignoring the officer. The officer then chases and grabs the male to detain him so that he can obtain his name and date of birth (bearing in mind that the officer is mistaken there is no power to obtain DOB) under section 50 Police Reform Act 2002 for his earlier outburst, there's also been a complaint made to your colleague from door staff. This results in a verbal tirade from the now detained person towards your colleague and further use of force from your colleague as he rapidly looses his cool. He gives his name but becomes even more abusive when asked for date of birth. You are also in uniform and both your colleague and the d/p now feeling in need of your assistance call you over. What do you do?
