Man Arrested for Resisting Arrest & Assaulting Police Following Single-Vehicle Collision

At about 1:00AM on Sunday, 1 September, officers conducting patrols on West Bay Road in the vicinity of Governor’s House observed a vehicle travelling at a high rate of speed towards West Bay. Officers attempted to follow the vehicle but soon discontinued due to the rate of speed at which it was travelling. The officers resumed normal patrol duties, and, a few minutes later, came upon a single vehicle collision on Yacht Drive, just off the Yacht Club Roundabout. It was discovered that the vehicle involved was the same one that the officers had observed earlier on West Bay Road. Officers spoke to the driver of the vehicle and detected the strong scent of alcohol on his breath. As a result, the man was breath tested with a result of .131%.

Officers attempted to arrest the man, however he resisted and a struggle ensued. Officers eventually deployed pepper spray in an effort to subdue him, and were able to take him into custody. One of the police officers received minor injuries during the struggle, and was treated at the hospital along with the man. Both were subsequently discharged.

The man, age 23 of George Town, was arrested on suspicion of DUI, dangerous driving, resisting arrest, and assaulting police. He is currently on bail.
