A serving officer from the Metropolitan Police has been given a final written warning.
PC Daniel Beegan, attached to Lewisham Borough, has been given a final written warning following a two-day misconduct hearing.
The officer faced allegations that his conduct amounted to a breach of the standards of professional behaviour in respect of discreditable conduct.
It was alleged that on 23 December 2014 whilst off-duty, PC Beegan was involved in an altercation during which he assaulted an unknown man.
The panel considered all of the evidence and sanctioned a final written warning as most appropriate.
