A St. Lucian-born man was charged earlier this month for pulling a firearm at his longtime friend at a barbeque in Orlando, Florida, U.S.A., according to police statements.

Larry Kenson Charlery, 28, was arrested and charged shortly after midnight on July 3 with aggravated assault with a firearm.

According to arrest documents obtained by our newsroom, the complainant Francis Jean told police he was outside his home with friends at 9:43 p.m. on July 2, 2017 when his friend (Charlery) arrived at his residence in a brown SUV.

Jean stated that Charlery got out of the vehicle with a silver and black gun and told him: “You are calling me
a punk a– nigga, call me a punk a– nigga say it to my face”.

Jean alleged in his written police statement that Charlery told him he would shoot him.

According to the documents, Jean told police he has known Charlery for 10 years and this has never happened before. Jean said he was in fear for his life when the gun was pointed at home.

Police received information at about 11 p.m. that same day that Charlery had called Orlando Police Department dispatch asking if he had a warrant for his arrest and that he wanted to turn himself in.

Officers eventually came into contact with Charlery on the streets where he was detained. He had no weapon in his possession when police met him.

According to reliable sources, this is not the first time Charlery has been in trouble with the law and may have at least two other incidents in which the police was involved.

A source who knows Charlery told St. Lucia News Online on condition of anonymity that everyone is surprised with his behaviour.

“[As a] child [he] was not raised that way so it’s suprising to everyone,” the source said, adding that Charlery is from the south of the island.

  5. He had no right to pull a gun on the man. These are the ones that practice criminal activities in the US and influence their other stupid friends in SLU to do the same. IF HE'S NOT A US CITIZEN, THEY SHOULD DEPORT HIM. SO STUPID TO DO THAT CALLING PEOPLE THE N WORD, YOU WORTHLESS!

  6. I wish people would just learn to listen more and say less. I don't know this brother, I wasn't at the scene of this alleged incident, so how can I possibly comment on one reporters views on something that happened in another country....feel me? We can find stories about crimes happening so far away, yet murders occur in our own back yard daily...no picture, no leads, no reporting?

    We're also such hypocrites. This trial by the public is really rubbish. Shame on this newspaper and others who do this. A St.Lucian journalist was accused of rape and his picture was never published...whatever happened to him? Yet we can publicly shame this young black man. A fellow St.lucian So what if he made a mistake. We have a history of corrupt politicians in St.Lucia that we glorify.

    And to everyone passing judgement. Nothing more than house slaves. Open your eyes and see the bigger picture here. You're out here crucifying a young man. He'll have his day in court and he'll pay for his crimes. But what many on here do is cowardly. Funny, it's the theme actually. That we St.Lucians are a bunch of cowards. They're selling our island to the Chinese as it is...say something.

    • well said...........people commit worse crimes that him and the stories day hidden..........this individual made one mistake in his life and his face is plastered everywhere, with people making judgment calls. No one is perfect....and it is called human nature and emotions.......which sometimes we let these emotions cloud our judgment......I know Larry from birth and we were raised together and this is not him..........he made a mistake and he knows he made a big mistake and will find a way to over come this obstacle........like you said let the law control the situation......because in the end we do not know what transpired..........but reading a article that may or may not contain the whole truth or story........

  7. I grew up with Larry and I know him. He has a good heart. but with that said it was stupid of him to have a gun at all. But he that is without sin let him cast the first stone. Which one of you was present at the location. There are three sides to each story. The published story Larry's story and the truth. I thougth one was inocent until proven guilty.

  8. FLA is notorious for its lax gun rules.

    Amongst responsible owners of firearms, one of the golden rules is "do not draw your weapon unless you are prepared to discharge it."

    He's a lucky man. He's alive. Police didn't arrive on scene and, justifiably so, drop him with three carefully placed rounds from a .45 autoload. It would also have saved a whole lot of taxpayers' money that will now be used to provide him a free public defender, try him in court, and the daily cost of giving him free room and board at the big-house.

  9. He has no rights to carry a gun around and pointing it someone. Good for him. They will eventually learn their lesson. St Lucians just can't be good citizens both in St lucia and abroad.

  12. I refer to the non publication of my comments. I think that my comments are justified for considering an assault with a gun a minor offence, considering the gun culture of the US. These threats happen in St. Lucia all day long with cutlasses etc. without it being in the news. Are you afraid to answer the real question as to motivation to be in the news. Is it because the man is a St. Lucian living in the US. We know nothing of the man character, however most St. Lucians (who don't judge themselves) are allowed a poke at their own countryman and maybe even potential contributors to his downfall. I am no way criticizing what appears on your news, however all must exercise a level of responsibility to country. If you are sincere and not selective in publishing news then you would publish my comments since it has nothing which is defamatory.

  13. Anicia what if the f-ng -gun was pointed at you or ur kids . Would you just stand there . Wrong is wrong . So because your friend said ur a slut you will brandish a fire arm. This guy needs to start acting like a grown ass man and not a punk. His attitude says it all.

  14. It is indeed surprising to hear such un-pleasant news regarding Larry. I grew up with him and I am not aware of him being involved in violence etc. Very unfortunate situation where anger controlled him. It is a serious incident and the repercussion is likely going to be harsh. Anger is a dangerous emotion which can easily escalate.

  15. Anicia Larry is your Man? You should say Larry should never left a gun at his friend!! What if the friend had a gun? What if the guy had drop a bullet in his balls for him? Because his balls too heavy he think he bad.

  16. Whether he was a good boy that doesn't matter now. We parents raise our kids how we want them to be but not what they have become. Too many times when we get to a foreign country n we get residency we feel we have rights to all sort bad behavior. Monkey see monkey do. U are a st.lucian be ur best
