A passenger travelling in a Gros Islet mini-bus was arrested a few minutes ago for assaulting a police officer. The man, who is said to be a Rastafarian, was travelling in the mini-bus, when a police officer ordered the bus driver to stop, because he put off passengers where there is no bus stop.
The Rastafarian man allegedly started verbally abusing the police officer. The police in return asked him to desist from his action and as he (the officer) was about to conduct a body search on the man, the passenger pelted a few blows about the officer’s body.
The man was taken to the Gros Islet Police station.
