A former commanding officer of the Royal Bermuda Regiment has been arrested by police.

A police spokesman confirmed that Lieutenant-Colonel David Curley was arrested and bailed in connection with an incident “for which it is anticipated he will soon appear before the courts”.

The spokesman refused to reveal the nature of the charges against Colonel Curley.

Colonel Curley was appointed as Commanding Officer of the RBR in 2016.

But it was revealed in November 2019 that he was the subject of a police investigation and had been absent from Warwick Camp since October.

He was replaced as Commanding Officer by Lieutenant-Colonel Ben Beasley last year.
