Key Points.

1.  CR's do not create a criminal record. (not recorded on the PNC, possibly on a local Met system)

2.  They are NOT legally binding.

So this crazed toerage can demolish someones bike, agree to a CR then backout pretty much consequence free.

I hope the victim gets a gold plated replacement from the drivers insurance company.

I also hope the Met explained all this to the victim so they had full possesion of the facts prior to agreeing to the CR.
