Top Muslim cop charged; RESTAURANT.

ONE of Britain's most senior Muslim police officers was charged yesterday with two criminal offences over a scuffle in a restaurant.

Metropolitan Police Commander Ali Dizaei, 47, is accused of misconduct in public office and perverting the course of justice.

Dizaei, president of the National Black Police Association, has been suspended since last September, after the incident in Kensington, West London, on July 18 last year.

Dizaei, who was wearing his uniform, arrested a young businessman after a row in which Dizaei claimed he was poked with the mouthpiece of a hookah water pipe.

Dizaei was ordered to attend City of Westminster magistrates on June 3. The allegations followed an investigation by the Independent Police Complaints Commission.
