Policeman charged with assaulting traffic warden
THE policeman involved in a fracas with a traffic warden on Frederick Street, Port of Spain on Monday has been charged with six offences arising out of the incident.
Sgt Pierre of the Professional Standards Bureau, a press release said, charged PC Nicholson George with assaulting traffic warden Monifa Henville; obstructing her in the execution of her duties (by refusing to submit his driver’s permit); obstructing traffic warden Shinnek Mathlin by failing to submit his driver’s permit; failing to have his driver’s permit on him, when asked to produce it by a uniformed officer, namely a traffic warden; and two charges of failing to comply with the directions of traffic wardens.
Police Commissioner Erla Christopher suspended George after the incident, which was recorded and posted to social media and quickly went viral. The Police Complaints Authority (PCA) is also doing a separate, independent investigation.
