Ex-Soldier arrested after drunken racial abuse on Underground


A 52 year old man from Watford has been arrested after being filmed racially abusing a fellow passenger on the London Underground.

He has been arrested on suspicion of a racially aggravated public order offence, police have said.

The video above shows the man hurling abuse at a passenger on the Bakerloo train, telling them to “get off the train”, that the Japanese are “nasty people”.

He continues, telling them to “stop talking about my relatives, you c**t. Get out of my country.”

When another passenger questioned him as to what he had against the Japanese, the man, who appears to be under the influence of alcohol, told the camera man that Japanese people killed his two cousins in the Second World War. He then turned his attention to the camera man and threatens to become violent.
