Hurdle accused of assault at a police station
Troy Jamar Hurdle was yesterday remanded into custody at HMP Dodds after appearing in the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court on an assault charge.
Hurdle, 34, of Odessa McClean Drive, My Lords Hill, St Michael pleaded not guilty to assaulting Jeramy Clarke twice on September 19.
However, when it came time for bail, police prosecutor Sergeant Neville Watson objected, on the grounds that Hurdle was currently on three sets of bail and had failed to report to Central Police Station three times a week, despite a court order.
Watson also argued that bail should be denied based on Hurdle’s antecedents; the nature and seriousness of the offence, one of which allegedly occurred at the police station; and for the protection of society.
Those factors were enough for the magistrate to keep Hurdle behind bars at the St Philip based penal institution until next month.
He returns to court on October 18.
