It has emerged that a Met officer faces the sack for gross misconduct after he was convicted of launching a foul-mouthed tirade at an Asian takeaway manager.
Pc Philip Juhasz, 31, hurled abuse at Pakistani Umer Nazir, 23, at the Delice de France snack kiosk at King's Cross railway station last September. The shop manager said the off-duty officer had demanded to be sold food that was about to be thrown away for half price.
He told the Daily Mail that after he refused to comply, he was met with a racist outburst. Juhasz was convicted of a racially aggravated public order offence at Westminster Magistrates' Court on March 23, police said.
