Man arrested for assaulting Police

On Monday evening, 22 November, firearms officers conducting a vehicular checkpoint along Shamrock Road in the vicinity of Armstrong Drive, had cause to stop a vehicle approaching the checkpoint. When officers attempted to speak to the driver of the vehicle, the front seat passenger began to act in a loud and aggressive manner, and obstructed the officers’ attempts to carry out their duties.

The officers warned the passenger against obstructing their efforts, however he continued. Officers informed the man that he was being arrested for disorderly conduct, however the man refused to exit the vehicle and resisted the officers’ attempts to restrain him, while kicking and striking at the officers. As a result, a taser was deployed and discharged by the officers. The man, age 21 of Bodden Town, was subsequently arrested for disorderly conduct, obstructing police, resisting arrest, and assaulting police.

He has been granted bail as investigations continue.
