Man charged with assaulting a police officer

A 27-year-old man was this morning charged with assaulting a police officer.

Triston Ricardo Weir admitted to dangerous driving and not having a driver's license, but has denied assaulting Pc Paul Canfield.

The March 24 incident, in which the police officer was put in hospital with a head injury, followed an attempt by police patrolling Court Street to stop Mr Weir as he drove a motorcycle.

The suspect was pursued to a residence on Middletown Lane, where the alleged assault took place. According to police, the officer fell after being pushed.

Mr Weir, represented by defence lawyer Larry Mussenden, will return to court on May 25. Senior Magistrate Archibald Warner released him on $2,000 bail.
