Teenager fined for cursing at police
A Pembroke teenager who cursed at a police officer was yesterday fined $1,000 for using offensive words.
Micah Clamens, 19, was arrested in the early hours of Saturday after police spotted him drinking what appeared to be alcohol on Front Street.
The officer approached the defendant and warned Clamens it was an offence to drink alcohol in public.
Clamens responded: “You cops are a bunch of f***ing p*****s.”
Warned about using offensive language, Clamens said: “Didn’t you hear what I f***ing said? You are a bunch of p*****s.”
The officer then arrested Clamens for using the offensive language in public. Clamens responded by again cursing at the officer.
Duty counsel Oonagh Vaucrosson told the court Clamens regretted the incident saying his temper got the better of him.
She also said Clamens was drinking water, not alcohol, when he was approached by police.
Senior Magistrate Archibald Warner fined Clamens for the offence.
