Councillor Brian Coleman arrested over assault in Finchley
Thursday, 20 September 2012
Arrested: Brian Coleman
A CONSERVATIVE councillor has been bailed following his arrest on suspicion of common assault.
Totteridge ward member Brian Coleman was arrested in connection with an alleged attack on a woman in Finchley High Road on Thursday afternoon.
Mr Coleman lost his Camden and Barnet Greater London Assembly seat to Labour's Andrew Dismore on May 4 this year, and a week later was replaced as cabinet member for environment by Tory councillor Dean Cohen.
He is now chairman of the budget and performance overview and scrutiny committee.
A police spokesman said: “A 51-year-old man has been arrested in connection with a common assault. He has been bailed to attend a north London police station in late October pending further enquiries.”
Mr Coleman was unavailable for comment.

Did he put up his own bail, or was there a whip round for it?
