This video shows De Groot explaining what he did, and then shows him leaving Central Local Court, protected from the crowd by five policemen, after being convicted of offensive behaviour. One over enthusiastic man is seen being frogmarched back into court to be charged. De Groot's conviction was overturned on appeal and he successfully sued the Commissioner of Police for wrongful arrest, receiving a payout of £69/1/9.
