This is the moment a police officer, based in Luton, is arrested by his own colleagues on suspicion of blackmail.
It came after a man called into the Bedforshire police station to report claims he as being blackmailed.
But as officers investigated the man's claims, it became clear the prime suspect was one of their own.
He said an envelope had been left on his car filled with photos of him visiting a prostitute.
It came with a typed blackmail note, demanding £1,000 in compensation along with instructions for a drop-off point.
The claims were so serious they were probed by the Major Crime Unit, which is headed Detective Chief Inspector Jerry Waite.
Initially, the police investigated the prostitute, known only as Kirie, who advertises on an adult-only website.
She insisted she had nothing to hide and officers struck her from their probe.
But then it emerged Gareth Suffling from Bedforshire Police's Serious Organised Crime Unit had carried out a car registration search on the victim's car just days earlier.
He was also caught on the surveillance team's cameras at the drop-off point.
The probe was then kept quiet, with just the officers involved in the know, reports the Daily Mail .
DC Suffling had been described as an "all round good egg", who just weeks before he tried to blackmail the man had been praised for his work tackling a child grooming ring.
He was arrested by DS Mark Devine just two days after he had attended an internal conference with the "unassuming" detective.
The police carrying out the arrest struggles to hide both his disgust and disbelief at having to arrest a fellow officer.
During his interviews he replied "no comment" and is suspended from duty.
But the following day, Suffling writes out a full confession.
In May last year he was charged with blackmail and misconduct in public office and four months later pleaded guilty at St Albans Crown Court .
Suffling was jailed for 18 months but Bedfordshire Police's chief constable felt this was not long enough and lodged and appeal for it to be increased.
In November, Suffling's sentence was double to three years.

Knezovich opened a news conference Thursday afternoon by offering his condolences to the Freeman community. He quickly shifted gears, however, pointing to a host of catalysts that he said were responsible for the violence.
“Where did we go sideways in raising our kids?” he said. “All of this violence they consume perhaps has caused a major crisis.”
Knezovich said guns haven’t changed over the years, and aren’t to blame in shootings. He said society is.
“You started glorifying cultures of violence. You glorified the gang culture,” he said. “You glorified games that are actually giving you points for raping and killing people. A gun did not change, we changed.”
A pervert who asked a '13-year-old girl' if she was up for a "gang bang" before he was caught by paedophile hunters has been jailed.
Phillip Hobson chatted with ‘Lisa’, a fake profile set up by a member of paedophile hunter group ‘Justice For Kids’, despite being told she was underage.
The 55-year-old asked if she was willing to meet up for a ‘gang bang’, spoke about staying in a bed and breakfast and the girl having sex with up to three men.
He also asked her to send ‘sexy’ photographs of herself in leggings - and told her to bring a friend along.
But he was arrested after members of the group confronted him at his home on the day he arranged to meet Lisa at Stoke train station.
Now Hobson, who was jailed for similar offences in December 2016, has been locked up for 20 months.
He was told by a judge: “Your risk is assessed as high. You are sexually attracted to children.”
Prosecutor Jonathan Dickinson told Stoke-on-Trent Crown Court that a member of the Justice For Kids group set up a profile of a 13-year-old girl online and the defendant initiated contact.
Cook County Jail officials said they planned to take action after several inmates clapped as the suspected killer of Cmdr. Paul Bauer was escorted from his first court hearing on Thursday.
Jail officials said they were going to forward video of the “despicable” action by up to five inmates to prosecutors so it could be considered in any potential sentencing. None of the inmates have faced trials yet. The officials also intend to transfer those inmates to jails outside Cook County.
The inmates were among 25 detainees in a bullpen waiting to see a judge after Shomari Legghette’s hearing, according to Cara Smith, chief policy officer for Sheriff Tom Dart. The area is between the court complex and the jail, a place called the bridge.
A video provided by the sheriff’s office shows several of the inmates in a high-ceilinged holding cell clap for Legghette when he walks by, his arms and legs shackled. Some of the inmates, dressed in beige jumpsuits and white sneakers, were seated on a bench and came to the front of the bullpen to watch but did not clap.

Police video of a Jan. 22 fatal shooting in Millville shows the deceased man refusing to obey orders to halt and apparently holding an unidentified object in his hands that he points at police. The Cumberland County Prosecutor's Office released video of the incident on Tuesday in response to a public records request. The video is from the patrol vehicle of Millville police Officer Colt Gibson, who was among officers sent to North High and McNeal streets in response to 911 calls from the man, city resident Edward C. Gandy Jr. Prosecutor Jennifer Webb-McRae said her office would not comment until its investigation into the shooting is complete. The video begins about 10:48 a.m. with the cruiser moving north on North High Street until it reaches a point just south of the McNeal Street intersection. Gibson is off camera until after shots are fired.A timer on the camera indicates the shots were fired seconds after 10:49 a.m. Initially, Gandy is seen standing in the empty parking lot of a business on the northwest corner of High and McNeal streets. Audio indicates at least two shots fired, but the firing is not visible on the video. Gandy appears to be shot in the chest and quickly falls to the street, rolling over.
At least two other officers in uniform are on scene as the shooting happens. Others quickly arrive. An Inspira ambulance is on scene quickly and emergency medical technicians go to Gandy immediately. He is placed on an ambulance and removed about 10:52 a.m. Catherine Gandy, the mother of Edward Gandy, said on last month that her son recently was released from a mental health crisis center and had been “suicidal” since a change in his prescription medication. On Tuesday, she said she had nothing more to say. Millville police are not involved in the investigation, and Gibson was placed on leave pending the investigation. A use of force report states Gibson fired two bullets at Gandy, although it does not state how many times Gandy was hit. Gandy precipitated the midmorning confrontation with calls to a county 911 operator during which he stated that he was armed with a loaded firearm and was “feeling homicidal.” The Prosecutor’s Office denied the request at the time with a statement that the video would not be released until it had interviewed all witnesses. The reasoning was that publication of the video could “taint their recollection of events and taint their subsequent interviews,” according to the office. According to the Prosecutor’s Office, the last witness was interviewed Friday. A courtesy copy of the video was given to the Gandy family prior to its release on Tuesday, according to the office.

A sheriff’s deputy in Cumberland County, North Carolina was caught on camera this week blasting pepper spray in a high school student’s face.
Local news station WRAL reports that the officer was at the high school to break up a physical fight that was occurring between two female students. At some point, says school officials, a 16-year-old male student tried to “inject himself into the situation.”
