A controversial London councillor has been arrested after an alleged assault following a dispute over a parking space.

Weird Friend of Pooter

Tory councillor Brian Coleman was held in police custody following his arrest last night in connection with the alleged incident yesterday afternoon.
Witnesses reportedly said the Barnet councillor was involved in a confrontation with café owner Helen Michael in North Finchley after she saw him parking in what is believed to be a nearby loading bay.
The Buzz Café owner apparently tried to take a picture of Cllr Coleman after which an alleged assault took place.
Ms Michael was summoned to a meeting with Barnet Council earlier this year after she produced a series of posters accusing Cllr Coleman of “murdering” Barnet’s high streets with high parking charges.
Cllr Coleman was one of the highest profile scalps claimed in the City Hall elections in May.
His defeat was largely blamed on the controversial parking reforms he steered through on Barnet Council, which saw parking fees rise and all pay and display metres scrapped and replaced by a new pay-by-phone system.
He also lost his role as chairman of the London Fire Authority when he failed to hold his London Assembly seat.
The local councillor is no stranger to controversy.
Last week he faced calls to apologise after calling members of the public “old hags” during a fiery council meeting about local authority cost-cutting.
In footage posted on YouTube, the former mayor of Barnet was heard responding to hecklers by saying there were “sad, mad and bad ... and a couple of old hags in the gallery”.
In 2009 he was found to have broken the council’s code of conduct after calling a blogger “an obsessive, poisonous individual” in an email.
A Scotland Yard spokesman last night said: “A man has been arrested in connection with an alleged common assault. He has been taken into custody at a central London police station.”


  1. Ghastly man. His life is in free-fall - and not before time

  2. Cockell did not have the opportunity to wine and dine Coleman in New York (at the taxpayers expense) before the Dame put a stop to his "little excesses"

  3. Coleman is more a mate of Moylan than Cockell (or Cllr Sir Merrick Cockwll, nominal Leader of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea and King of the Free Loaders) as he is more properly known

  4. Oops.....

    Freudian slip
