Police recruit has hand in his own arrest

WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) -- A New Zealand police recruit has had a hand in his own arrest for an unsolved assault. As part of a training exercise in fingerprinting at the Royal New Zealand Police College, the recruit gave his prints - and they matched him to an arrest warrant for a serious assault, Wellington's Dominion Post newspaper reported Wednesday.

He was arrested late last week and will appear in court later this week, the paper reported.

Training commander, Superintendent Alistair Beckett, said the recruit, whose name was not reported, had managed to slip through rigorous screening of potential recruits.

Anything like having them show up to arrest a recruit on fellony warrants, becasue the only BOP / WMS check completed on someone was when they went to issue firearms for training?
