Disturbance in Hamilton establishment

A man was arrested last night in connection with a “disturbance” involving a knife at a North Hamilton establishment, according to police.

A spokesman said police were alerted at about 11.20pm, but that the suspect had left the area on a motorcycle, while not wearing a helmet, before officers arrived.

The suspect was later seen approaching a residence on Middletown Lane, Pembroke, when he lost control of the motorcycle and fell onto the roadway.

Checks indicated that the motorcycle was unlicensed and uninsured.

The man was arrested on suspicion of having an offensive weapon, and was found to be in possession of a box cutter.

Officers also smelt alcohol, and the man refused to submit a breath sample.

The man has been charged with carrying an offensive weapon without lawful authority or reasonable excuse, driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, and failing to comply with a demand for a breath test.

He was also issued four moving violation tickets for riding an uninsured motorcycle, riding an unlicensed motorcycle, not having a driver's licence and riding without a helmet.
