UK: Policemean dismissed for text messages sent to ex and tried to blame colleague


A senior Met detective has been fired for gross misconduct after harassing his WPC ex-girlfriend with abusive texts - then trying to blame a colleague.

Detective Sergeant Nyles Mullin, 44, sent the threatening messages after his lover dumped him.

When the former murder squad officer was rumbled he claimed a female colleague, who he also falsely claimed he was sleeping with, had taken his phone to send the messages. But it was found that she was 50 miles away from the phone when some of the texts were sent in 2009.

He was dismissed at a police misconduct hearing and only avoided a criminal prosecution because of an administrative mistake by the Crown Prosecution Service.

A police source said: "The fact he was guilty of harassing his ex was bad enough but that he blamed it on another colleague was unforgiveable."
