The estate agent who accosted England's chief medical officer, Professor Chris Whitty, has been charged with common assault.
Lewis Hughes, 23 and from Romford, has been sacked by the agency for which he worked - Caplen Estates in Essex.
Now he has been charged and will appear at Westminster Magistrates' Court on July 30.
"At approximately 19:20hrs on Sunday, 27 June officers in St James's Park became aware of a man being accosted by a group of men" says a Metropolitan Police statement.
It goes on: "Officers subsequently reviewed video footage which emerged after the incident and the matter was referred to the Public Order Crime Team. Enquiries continue."
Hughes had been on an anti-vaccination march on Sunday when he and a friend spotted Whitty at about 3pm in a central London park. They filmed the encounter, which appeared to show Hughes and his friend manhandling Whitty in an attempt to secure a selfie. They then posted the video on social media.
The ex-agent himself is quoted by The Sun newspaper as saying: "I absolutely apologise for any upset I caused. If I made him feel uncomfortable, which it does look like I did, then I am sorry to him for that. He is quite a timid, shy person and I think that is why he didn’t say ‘Get off me’. If he had said that and I had realised how he felt, I wouldn’t have put my arm round him.”
The incident provoked a strong rebuke from Prime Minister Boris Johnson who said: "I’m shocked at seeing the despicable harassment of Chief Medical Officer Chris Whitty. I condemn the behaviour of these thugs. Our hard-working public servants should not have to face this kind of intimidation on our streets and we will not tolerate it.”
