Police have allegedly stormed into Laurence Fox’s home as the fired GB News host livestreams officers searching and bagging up his possessions.
Scotland Yard confirmed a 45-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of conspiring to commit criminal damage to ULEZ cameras and encouraging or assisting offences to be committed.
A Met spokeswoman said: “He was arrested in Stockwell and has been taken to a South London police station where he remains in custody.”
“Coming after Lozza,” the actor-turned-activist says to a friend filming on his phone.
The camera turns to see at least five uniformed officers going through items at the failed London mayoral candidate’s living room.
He says: “What? Look at how many coppers there are in my house.
“That ladies and gentlemen is the country that we live in.”
He then takes a drag on a cigar and puts his thumb up to the camera.
Nigel Farage, shared the footage, adding: “This is so wrong and very frightening. Why so many police officers?”
Andrew Tate replied to the video: “The Matrix”.
Fox later says to his friend and fellow axed GB News star Calvin Robinson’s stream: “There’s another three [officers] upstairs stealing and going through my house to intimidate me.
“This is what the police are, they do not police with consent anymore.”
He told his fans: “Have a lovely day. I’m going to spend my day in the clink innit.”
It came after his episode of the GB News programme Dan Wootton Tonight received more than 8,000 complaints after he asked: “Who would want to shag that” in slurs against left-wing political correspondent Ava Evans.
Ofcom, the media watchdog, said it had received a total of 8,846 complaints about the episode of Wootton‘s show.
Fox has faced a disciplinary hearing with the channel after making a series of personal remarks which were described as “unacceptable, unjustifiable and indefensible”.
