petrol station staff pull man from car

Mr Clarke's death followed an altercation with garage employee Abu Sayem, who thought they were going to try and drive off without paying for petrol, the court heard.
Mr Clarke was pulled from the car by Mr Sayem, but Islam drove the car at them, knocking Mr Clarke over and trapping him under the car as he drove off.
The vehicle finally came to a halt at traffic lights when members of the public lifted the car up and tried to save Mr Clarke's life.

Abu Sayem had some tough choices to make that day. Was he brave? Was he foolish? Where many employees would stand bacvk and just watch this unfolding, Sayem took action. Was he right?

Legally speaking I think he was.
Use of force in making arrest, etc.

(1)A person may use such force as is reasonable in the circumstances in the prevention of crime, or in effecting or assisting in the lawful arrest of offenders or suspected offenders or of persons unlawfully at large.
(2)Subsection (1) above shall replace the rules of the common law on the question when force used for a purpose mentioned in the subsection is justified by that purpose
In my opinion he was acting legally.

I would love to hear Sayem's own statement on this!
