Conductor denies assaulting officer

COURT TODAY BLOCKA man accused of assaulting a station sergeant of police was granted $3,000 bail earlier today.

When Darren Manningham Burgess, a 28-year-old conductor, went before Magistrate Douglas Frederick in the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court, he pleaded not guilty to six offences.

Burgess, who lives at No. 603 London Bourne Towers, Bay Street, The City, denied the August 27 charges of being in possession of cannabis and a flick knife.

The other four charges were all related to offences against Station Sergeant Wendell Thomas; that Burgess unlawfully and maliciously wounded the lawman, resisted arrest, assaulted him and damaged a pair of glasses belonging to him.

The accused returns to court on November 26.

Attorney-at-law Dr Waldo Waldron-Ramsay Q.C. represented Burgess today, but he assured the court that he was only appearing
this once to address the question of bail for the accused.

The lawyer added that since he was very closely related to the complainant, he was “between the devil and the deep blue sea” and Burgess would have to find someone else going forward.
