"I was just completely gobsmacked," the 39-year-old told the Daily Mail. "I thought it was some kind of Beadle's About moment – a wind-up. I made sure it was safe. The traffic was nose to tail in the high street."
His mistake, however, was to cross paths with PC Gray – after all, his colleagues don't call him PC Shiny Buttons for no reason.
Only a few months ago, PC Gray issued a £50 penalty for littering to the unsuspecting Stewart Smith. His crime? He had accidentally dropped a £10 note in the street after leaving a shop.
For Mr Mancini, though, there could be a long legal battle ahead but his solicitor Peter Lockhart insists: "We will be pleading not guilty and will fight it all the way."
In the meantime, should PC Stuart Gray be allowed to continue his over-zealous approach or is this a perfect example of the misuse of power?
