‘I hope not to see you back, but all indications are that you will be with that attitude’
A 22-year-old who assaulted a police officer was fined $2000 in Magistrates’ Court.
Lincoln Smith, of Newman Lane, Pembroke, had to be subdued with a Taser in the March 14 incident.
Crown consul Maria Sofianos said Smith was pulled over by police as he drove his cycle past the junction of South Shore Road and Inglewood Lane in Paget.
Smith was disqualified from driving for six months in September, and was four days short of getting his licence back.
He struggled with officers after being told to get off the bike and struck one in the face. Smith and the officer fell to the ground. He continued struggling until he was shocked with the Taser.
Magistrate Khamisi Tokunbo fined Smith $1,000 for the driving offence, and banned him from driving for a further 12 months.
He was fined an extra $1,000 for assaulting a police officer.
Said Mr Tokunbo: “I hope not to see you back, but all indications are that you will be with that attitude.”
