Politician attacked a woman - level 2

Politician attacked a woman - level 2

08-05-2013 13:00

Security cameras filmed a London ex-politician as he attacked a woman.

The politician was breaking the parking rules in front of a cafe. The owner of this cafe saw him and she tried to film him with her phone. He didn't like that so he attacked her and wanted to take the phone. The man injured her and even scratched her.

The politician said that he did a bad thing. Now he has to pay over a thousand pounds in fines.

Interesting words: scratch (cut skin a little bit with something sharp), fine (money that you have to pay after doing something bad).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
