A police officer has been talked about on social media for calling a fan ‘dickhead’ to get their attention when trouble started outside Elland Road after Leeds’ win over Stoke City on Sunday.
The moment was captured on camera by AllLeedsTV, it showed police trying to interact with those who attended the Championship clash.
The chaotic scenes saw supporters swearing, chanting, trying to communicate with the police as well as being pushed around, who were eventually separated into two groups by police horses.
One police officer got the situation under control by, as he says to a fan, “talking in an industrial language that people like you can understand” after being branded that he was “sectioning 5 people”.
As he approached a large group of supporters he told them to “grow up” and :get yourself home”, which seemed to do the trick as they one by one started to disappear.
Check out the whole video of the scenes below, the “dickhead” comment towards the end…
There was plenty of social media reaction to the video. Some in support of the police and others not so.
