It is alleged that during a train journey, PC Pecorini and PC Joesbury began dancing in a sexualised manner and another passenger; ‘Mr A’ began filming this.

It is alleged that PC Pecorini and former PC Joesbury spoke to Mr A and then a confrontation took place, during which force was used and injuries were caused.

It is alleged that PC Pecorini, PC Mykoo and former PC Joesbury used their warrant cards to travel on the train, rather than obtaining a ticket.

It is alleged that the three officers were too intoxicated to provide meaningful help and that using their warrant cards to travel free of charge breached the Standards of Professional Behaviour in respect of Duties and Responsibilities, Orders and Instructions and Discreditable Conduct.
It is further alleged that PC Pecorini, PC Mykoo and former PC Joesbury behaved in a disorderly manner on the train, engaging in noisy and drunken behaviour, in breach of the Standards of Professional Behaviour in respect of Authority, Respect and Courtesy and Discreditable Conduct.
It is also alleged that PC Pecorini and former PC Joesbury engaged in sexualised and inappropriate dancing on the train, in breach of Authority, Respect and Courtesy and Discreditable Conduct paragraphs of the Standards of Professional Behaviour.
It is further alleged that PC Pecorini, PC Mykoo and former PC Joesbury confronted the passenger in a loud, aggressive and/or physical manner, in breach of the Standards of Professional Behaviour in respect of Authority, Respect and Courtesy and Discreditable Conduct.
It is finally alleged that PC Pecorini used unreasonable force on Mr A when he struck him in the face with his elbow, in breach of the Authority, Respect and Courtesy, Use of Force and Discreditable Conduct paragraphs of the Standards of Professional Behaviour.
