So the Racially aggravated public order charge relates solely to his conduct towards a police officer?

Thank you for clearing that up, as The Yarg-us was its usual vague self.

I had previously assumed that the original door damage was the bit that was racially-motivated, because that is certainly related to public order, lol.

I hope that all officers involved are safe.
