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 himself’.
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 the arrest have apologised to him.

Marilyn Monroe, the world’s number one sex symbol and the most desirable woman on the planet, was not the man-eating siren that her image suggested, it has been revealed.
Fifty years after her death, an author who met the star has questioned her sexual identity.
Although she married and divorced three times, she was – though few people are aware of the fact – a lesbian by inclination.
She admitted to sexual encounters with actresses Joan Crawford, Barbara Stanwyck, Marlene Dietrich and Elizabeth Taylor, as well as with both her acting coaches, Natasha Lytess and Paula Strasberg.
Only a day before Jean Negulesco, who directed her in ‘How To Marry A Millionaire’, was due to visit her, Monroe was found dead.
“I still think I might have saved her if I could have got to her in time,” the Daily Mail quoted him as saying.
“You know what was wrong with her, don’t you?
“Her whole existence was a search for identity, and her sexual identity was a complete lie.
“She told me once she had never had an orgasm with a man in her entire life,” he said.
Another of those who worked with Monroe, actress Celeste Holm, who appeared with her in ‘All About Eve’, and who died last Sunday, said that Marilyn’s sexual problems were rooted in her traumatic childhood.
Born illegitimately in 1926 to an unmarried mother in the charity ward of the Los Angeles General Hospital, she was originally known as Norma Jeane Mortenson, the child of a 24-year-old film negative cutter, Gladys Pearl Monroe Mortenson, who developed schizophrenia.
Both of Gladys’s parents, Otis Elmer Monroe and Della Monroe Grainger, lived out their twilight years in mental institutions, while Gladys’s brother, Marion, was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia.
So it is small wonder that the child who became Marilyn Monroe grew up with a deep-rooted fear of genetic insanity.
This, according to Celeste Holm, gave Marilyn a lifelong terror of pregnancy.
In addition to her fear of giving birth to an abnormal child, Marilyn suffered from devastating bouts of endometriosis, a gynaecological condition causing intense pelvic pain, severe cramps and painful periods.
It made normal sexual intercourse difficult and uncomfortable.
“Because of this Marilyn was never able to enjoy sex with men,” Holm said.
“She was afraid of it, and turned to older women as sexual role models,” she had said.
After recently announcing her divorce from Arthur Becker, Vera Wang may already have moved on with a new man, according to reports.
New reports have stated that Vera Wang may now be dating Evan Lysacek, 27, the 2010 Winter Olympics gold medal winner in figure skating. Wang herself has experience on the ice. The 63-year-old began her fashion career after failing to win a spot on the US Olympic figure skating team, quite a few years ago.
Just last week representatives for the designer released a statement, revealing that Wang was planning on divorcing her husband of 23 years.
“Vera Wang and Arthur Becker have mutually and amicably agreed to separate. They remain devoted parents to their two daughters,” Mario Grauso said in a statement.
That Wang would be dating someone else, however, comes as a surprise for someone who claimed to be too dedicated to her career to have time for relationships.
“I was the girl who nobody thought would ever get married,” she told New York magazine in 2006.
“I was going to be a fashion nun the rest of my life. There are generations of them, those fashion nuns, living, eating, breathing clothes.”
It was her fellow colleague, Ralph Lauren, that inspired her to continue her journey in life alongside a partner.
“Get yourself a husband and a family,” Wang recalled Lauren saying. “You have got to get a family going here. You’ve been single for three decades now.”
However, despite having two daughters, Wang was still unsure about her decision at times and not always willing to separate herself from work.
But the New York Daily News has now reported that Lysacek has moved in with the iconic fashion designer. The pair attended Kim Kardashian’s wedding last October and have been close for a while, sources say, although new speculation has raised the question of whether the two are now more than friends.
