Saw that earlier today as it goes.
Everyone involved was in good humour i felt, but having said that, the police did repeatedly try to trap him with their heavily rehearsed patter...'understand' being the classic one we should all get used to refusing.
'Do you understand me' is legal jargon for 'Do you stand under what i'm saying' or more accurately 'Do you obey and submit to my authority'.
It does NOT mean 'Do you comprehend what i'm saying' as most people think it means.
Best to get in the habbit of saying 'No i do not understand, but i do comprehend the words you are speaking'.
