The Defendant saw V dragging a youth along the street and hitting him. The Defendant punched V as the youth was calling for help. He believed that V was assaulting the youth. It turned out that V was a police officer who had arrested the youth for mugging an old lady. The jury were told that a mistake would only be relevant if it was a reasonable mistake. The Defendant’s appeal was upheld and his conviction quashed.
