From RCIPS 12th Dec 2016 12:32 PM

Around 1AM Saturday morning, 10 December, officers were making roadside checks on Esterley Tibbetts Highway in the vicinity of the old Hyatt Regency.   During a stop of one vehicle and conversation with the driver, the passenger in the vehicle, a man, began using abusive language toward the officer, and was warned, but then continued.  The man then refused to comply with officer commands to step out of the vehicle.  The man was then arrested for disorderly conduct, during which he violently resisted arrest and punched the officer in the face; pepper spray was then deployed.

The officer who was punched received treatment at Cayman Islands Hospital for injuries to his face.

The man, age 27 of West Bay, was taken into police custody and charged yesterday with Assault and Assault ABH.  He will appear in court today.
