Around 10:45 AM, whilst on mobile patrol along Charlotte Street, a group of persons were observed gathered in the vicinity of Lucky Bakery.

He was instructed to wear his face mask properly when he began behaving in a disorderly manner.
He was subsequently arrested and conveyed to the City Police Headquarters.
He will appear before the Port of Spain Magistrates’ Court on the 27th July, 2021.
