DJ remanded in custody
A DJ was remanded in custody yesterday after he was accused of harassing and threatening to stab a woman.
Gregory Outerbridge, 40, pleaded not guilty to the use of “menacing” words against Samantha Wainwright through the telephone, namely: “I’m coming to your house to stab you in the f****** face with a knife.”
He also denied threatening Ms Wainwright with injury and harassing her by repeatedly calling her phone.
The incidents are alleged to have happened on June 12.
The court heard that Mr Outerbridge, who is also known as DJ Sheep, had known Ms Wainwright for three and a half years and that they had a child together.
Maria Sofianos, for the Crown, objected to bail and asked that Mr Outerbridge be remanded until his trial.
But Paul Wilson, for the defence, argued that his client had personal and work-related responsibilities to attend to, including a job at a private party over the Bermuda Heroes’ Weekend.
Magistrate Maxanne Anderson remanded Mr Outerbridge, from St George’s, in custody and adjourned the case until June 21.
