Man admits cocaine possession

Malik Outerbridge, 43, has admitted to possessing 0.19g of cocaine of 90 per cent purity.

After sentencing Outerbridge in Plea Court this morning, Magistrate Khasimi Tokunbo ordered a social inquiry report to be conducted on the defendant.

Police were on patrol travelling west on Middle Road, Devonshire, at 1.30am on December 27 last year when they observed Outerbridge riding a motorcycle and entering Montpelier Road from Middle Road without stopping at the stop sign.

Prosecutor Larissa Burgess told the court that after being pulled over in the area of Corkscrew Hill, the defendant became irate. Police discovered there was a warrant out for Outerbridge's arrest. The defendant refused to be handcuffed, violently resisted arrest and called the officers, “f***ing white f****ts”.

He added: “You are lucky I don't know where you live.”

When Outerbridge was searched, Police discovered a container with a yellowish white rock substance inside his pocket and he was arrested under suspicion of possessing a controlled drug, later confirmed as cocaine.

Outerbridge told Police: “That's [for] personal use; I won't go to court for that.”

Addressing the judge in court, Outerbridge said: “It was a mistake on my part. The way I acted was not mature.”

He is due to be sentenced on May 21 and has been released on bail of $1,000.
