St Thomas woman charged

A St Thomas woman is due to return to court on December 2 to answer to several charges, including using insulting language and threatening words towards a police officer.

Twenty-four-year-old Akiba Ashley Bruce of 11 Stanton Path, Bagatelle Gardens, St Thomas, was arrested and charged with obstructing police in the execution of duty, resisting and assault in the execution of duty, and using insulting language and threatening words.

The offences were committed on Wednesday at Cemetery Road, Sunset Crest, St James, where police were on duty assisting with crowd control at the interment of Jamar Grazette.

Lawmen say they had the occasion to speak with a young man when Bruce intervened and committed the offences.

She appeared before the Holetown Magistrates Court yesterday where she pleaded guilty to obstruction and resisting arrest.

She pleaded not guilty to the other offences and was granted bail in the sum of $3,000 with one surety to reappear in court on December 2.

    Does disrespecting the Police make a lot of Barbadians feel empowered ? It does appear to. It often happens when there is an audience .I guess it like someone that carry a weapon.They’ll use it to show how tough they are and then face the consequences.
