The knuckle duster was seized by officers after they responded to reports of a group of males fighting early Saturday morning (1 January), on Park Road in Bedworth.

The 25-year-old man responsible for carrying it was arrested – and he was subsequently charged with possession of an offensive weapon in a public place.

But, officers did not just charge him for that – he was further charged for being drunk and disorderly in a public place, and also for attempting to possess cocaine.

At the time of publication (Tuesday, 4 January), officers did not release any further details about any of the other individuals involved in the fight which took place.
