POLICE raced to support a PCSO after he called in back-up for a public order incident – but officers arrested him for drink driving instead.

Community support officer Andrew Seston, 44, from Cuxham Road in Watlington, was charged after he was arrested at 4.15pm on Tuesday.

Officers attended Edmond Road, Lane End, after receiving a call for assistance from Seston, who was responding to a public order incident.

Police also received a call from the man allegedly involved in the incident about the behaviour of Seston.

Seston was arrested on suspicion of driving while over the legal limit when officers arrived and he was subsequently charged.

The car he was allegedly driving is owned by Thames Valley Police.

He has been released on bail to appear at Aylesbury Magistrates’ Court on May 17.
