Man ordered to pay $3,000 in damages to police vehicle

A 41-year-old man has been ordered to pay damages amounting to $3,000 after he attacked a police vehicle last month.

Terrence Samuel, of Heliconia Crescent, La Horquetta, is the subject of a matter before Senior Magistrate Gillian David Scotland at the Arima Magistrates’ Court.

He is charged with causing malicious damage to State property – namely a government (police) vehicle – and for using obscene language.

PC Beleron of Rapid Response Unit is the complainant in the matter.

The 41-year-old was given until March 25, when the matter will next be heard, to pay the fine.

According to police reports, around 5:30 am on February 3, police were on patrol when they observed the man acting in a disorderly manner.

They stopped to caution him, however, Samuel reportedly lunged at the police vehicle the officers were in while cursing them repeatedly.

As a result, Samuel was detained.

He was eventually charged and was brought before an Arima Magistrate.
