Man to appear in court after air pistol pointed at police officer in Camden
He was charged with a number of offences including possession of a firearm with intent to cause fear of violence and dangerous driving.

A man has been charged with possession of a firearm following an incident where an air pistol was pointed at a police officer in north London.

Tony Adams 46, of Grieg Walk, Corby Northamptonshire is accused of a number of offences and will appear at Highbury Magistrates’ Court on Monday.

They include possession of a firearm with intent to cause fear of violence, dangerous driving, driving whilst disqualified and driving with no insurance.

It comes after a police officer had a carbon dioxide-powered air pistol pointed at him following a chase in Camden op Vrydag.

The force initially said it was thought to be a replica.

The officer was uninjured and there are no reports of any injuries to any other people.

Adams has been remanded in custody ahead of the court appearance.
