A drunk Metropolitan Police officer threatened bouncers with a photo of a gun after he was refused entry to a nightclub. 

PC Samuel Addy was off-duty and on a night out on March 6, 2022. 

He was intoxicated as he had been binge drinking before going to the club, a Met Police misconduct hearing was told on December 21, 2023. 

After PC Addy had been denied entry to the club he presented a photo of a gun to the bouncers while saying: "Look back in the day you wouldn’t mess with me.” 

However, the misconduct hearing was told that the reaction of the door staff was “so what?”. 

When police arrived at the scene PC Addy then slapped a colleagues hands twice and said “Do not touch me because I will lay you out”, the misconduct panel were told. 

The panel concluded that PC Addy’s actions amounted to gross misconduct. 

The panel said: "Firstly he showed the picture of the gun and made the accompanying implicit threat in order to gain entry into the club which was to his own personal advantage. 

"Secondly, his behaviour was sustained for some 8 minutes and continued even when he should have realised both from what the police and members of the public had said to him, that his behaviour was inappropriate." 

PC Addy had already resigned from the force, but had he still been serving he would have been dismissed without notice.
