This is the moment police arrested a mother in front of her children after an alleged Twitter row.
Caroline Farrow was at home with her husband Robin and their five children when officers arrived to take her into custody.
She was preparing a roast on Monday night when police officers showed up at the door of her Guildford home and tried to get inside.
Ms Farrow, a Catholic media commentator, claims Surrey Police have no warrant for her arrest.
A picture from the incident appears to show a police officer’s arm holding open Ms Farrow’s door with her hand on the other side.
She shared the picture on Twitter with the caption: “How it started. No search warrant. I opened the door and this guy pushed it open to come in.”
Alongside two other photos, she wrote: “How it ended. Frisked and chopped off to be taken to the cells and show some memes posted by someone else.”
One of the images appears to show a police officer frisking Ms Farrow, while the other shows a police vehicle leaving her property.
Referring to her arrest, Ms Farrow told GB News she was arrested for a “Twitter spat about gender issues”.
She said: “In a minute I made dinner for my kids and then I had my socks checked for drugs. That took a whole shift. What an absolute waste of police time.
“I was then shown other material that the police accused me of sending. None of them came from me.”
Ms Farrow was taken to a police station where she was questioned for several hours before being released under investigation on Tuesday morning.
Police have confiscated a number of their electronic devices as part of their investigation.
A Surrey Police spokesman said officers went to Ms Farrow’s home because of “allegations of malicious communication and harassment”.
They said: “On Monday October 3, officers visited an address in the Guildford area as part of an investigation into allegations of malicious communications (sending indecent, grossly offensive messages, threats or information) and harassment.
“A 48-year-old woman has been arrested on suspicion of both offences.
“A number of electronic devices have been seized from this address under Section 19 of PACE as potential evidence. For example, if a crime is alleged to have been committed on an electronic device, it may contain a vital piece of evidence and may be routinely seized during an investigation.
“The woman was taken to Guildford Police Station where she was questioned. She has now been released under investigation and the investigation is ongoing.”
Temporary Detective Chief Inspector David Bentley said hardware is being taken in cases by officers working to “gather further evidence and conduct an investigation to prove or disprove the allegation”.
Ms Farrow denies the allegations and claims she was playing the organ during mass at Holy Angels Church in Aldershot when the entries were uploaded.
