A man who was arrested on his way to an anti-royal demonstration on the day of the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton has received compensation from London police.
Adam Moniz's lawyer Sarah McSherry said Friday the Metropolitan Police had apologized to Moniz for arresting him at Victoria train station in London on his way to a peaceful, authorized demonstration. She said he had no criminal record and no intention of committing a crime.
McSherry said Moniz was held in a police cell for "anticipated breach of the peace" and released without charge six hours later after the royal wedding was over.
McSherry said police had also agreed to pay Moniz 5,000 pounds ($7,740) compensation and cover his legal fees. Metropolitan Police declined to comment on the case.
