PC Jack Lucas is a present day city centre police officer. He is a dedicated and thorough police officer and family man. He is well respected by his peers and everything in his life is going well.
One Saturday night Lucas is on patrol when he and a colleague witness a group of males attack and attempt to rob another male. Lucas and his colleague intervene and Lucas is attacked by the main offender with a knife. He is forced to use a high level of force to defend himself and arrest the offender.
Following a complaint made about the incident, Lucas quickly finds himself the suspect in a criminal investigation of assault by his forces complaints department and is arrested. Whilst in custody Lucas’s prisoner dies, apparently of injuries caused by his arrest.
Lucas soon discovers that the offender did not die as a result of injuries caused by him, but of someone else’s neglect. At the same time he also discovers that the complaints department are forging false evidence to show it was his actions that killed the prisoner which will guarantee he is sent to prison for Manslaughter.
He escapes from custody with the evidence and goes on the run as a wanted criminal whilst conducting his own investigation into the events... will he be able to clear his name?
Bobby on the Run is based on real life experiences of real police officers.
