A father with Parkinson’s disease was arrested as he watched the Olympic cycling road race because he 'failed to smile or look like he was enjoying himsel''.


Mark Worsfold, a martial arts trainer and former soldier, claims that he was thrown to the floor and handcuffed just as cyclists passed by.


His worried wife Nicola only found out he was being held after she reported him missing when he did not turn up for their daughter’s ninth birthday party.


The 54-year-old had his fingerprints, DNA and mugshot taken before being questioned about why he did not appear to be enjoying the event on July 28.


Police said Mr Worsfold, who was held for over five hours, was arrested because of ‘his manner, his state of dress and his proximity to the course'.


A spokesman added that the arrest was necessary to avoid a breach of the peace because he was standing near a group of protesters.


But Mr Worsfold, who was diagnosed with Parkinson's in 2010, said that one of the symptoms of the disease is muscle rigidity, which can cause his face to become expressionless and mask-like.


‘I was sitting minding my own business,' he told a local newspaper. ‘Before I knew anything the police grabbed me off this seven-foot wall, threw me to the floor and cuffed me so all I saw of the cycle race was between the feet of people from the pavement.


‘It could have been done better. I was arrested for not smiling. I have Parkinson's.'


Mr Worsfold has since asked for a letter of exoneration from police. The officers who made thearrest have apologised to him.
