DISGRACED MP Eric Joyce is facing charges of breach of the peace after being arrested following an incident at Edinburgh Airport, after one witness said police pinned him to the floor.
The incident, is said to have involved an argument over a mobile phone.
Mr Joyce, who had arrived on a flight from London, is understood to have left his phone on the plane, and was said to have become abusive to handling staff agents when he was not immediately allowed to retrieve it.
Airport staff contacted the police, who the MP was also said to have behaved aggressively towards, resulting in a scuffle which saw Mr Joyce end up on the floor before being arrested.
A source said: “The handling agents called the police after a passenger became abusive towards them. When the police arrived the passenger was seen to push one of the officers. The officers attempted to calm him down but he became more and more aggressive and eventually went to grab one of the 
officers. The officers then pushed him up against the desk and down on to the floor, where he was handcuffed. A policeman was on top of him, with his knee at the back of his neck.
“A whole flight full of people walked past while he was restrained on the ground.”

You really couldn't make it up, at what point will he fall on his sword?

  1. I think some form of prison sentence must be in the pipeline, its the third incident in a year! He got off lightly last time and narrowly escaped prison 1st time round...don't see how a judge will have much choice!
