Policeman charged with cursing superior

A police constable has been charged with cursing a superior in uniform.

Dario Padmore, 23, of Maxwell, Christ Church, found himself on the wrong side of the law yesterday after allegedly cursing the sergeant who had been investigating a report relating to the playing of loud music.

Police public relations officer Inspector David Welch told Barbados TODAY that officers went to the constable’s home after receiving a report.

“A [uniformed] sergeant attended to it and he was told of the report and allegedly expletives were used to the sergeant,” he said.

That lawman appeared in the District “B” Magistrates Court where he pleaded not guilty to using abusive language to the police in the execution of his duties.

He was granted $2,500 bail to reappear on March 5. (DS)

    @ beehive honey, it doesn’t matter if you are in the road or in your house. Using abusive language to a police officer is against the law. Shame on him!
