This story is weird. Don't they have prison cells? If you get banged up in a UK police station you get put in a cell with a little hatch in the door. There is little room for vandalism, and if you tried it they would probably find you a suitable staircase to fall down.

And if you shout "This is nothing like the Bill" they don't find it at all amusing.

Indeed Lincoln, takes one to know one ,ha ha, although I expect it was due to the fact that the police are not used to dealing with violent criminals, which if you think about it is a good thing .
