Jail for man who threatened police


A 27-year-old man who threatened and swore at police was jailed for 30 days yesterday.

Magistrates’ Court heard that Keno Lambert became aggressive after police were sent to a report of a public nuisance at White Hill Field in Sandys about 9.30pm on August 5.

Lambert approached the officers with his middle fingers extended and swore at them.

He was told to move back and he did so.

Officers returned to the area an hour later to respond to an unrelated incident and saw Lambert in the middle of the road.

Lambert ran away, but he returned when officers were about to leave the area.

He shouted: “I’m going to f*** you up. I’m going to f****** get you.”

Lambert fled on foot, but was caught by police in a nearby car park.

Lambert lashed out at officers in a bid to avoid being handcuffed as he was arrested.

Magistrate Juan Wolffe heard that Lambert at first denied the offences and remained in custody because he could not raise bail.

Lambert, of Sandys, admitted six charges in connection with the incident yesterday.

He told the court: “I would like to say I have learnt my lesson. I’m terribly sorry.”

Mr Wolffe said Lambert’s behaviour could not be tolerated.

He ordered that time already spent in custody should be deducted from the sentence.
