Elderly man bailed


A 79-year-old retiree who allegedly assaulted a sergeant of police recently is out out on bail.

Bertie Robey Brathwaite, of “Magrid” Fordes Road, Brittons Hill, St Michael is also charged with resisting Sergeant Erwin Norville and using the insulting words “you is a blasted idiot” towards the officer as he executed his duty on April 11, 2019.

Brathwaite pleaded not guilty to the charges after Magistrate Douglas Fredrick read them and was granted $1,500 bail which he secured with one surety.

The case against him continues in the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court on September 9, 2019.
