Police officers in the middle of a DUI exercise in St Joseph on Friday night had cause to arrest a Special Reserve Police Constable attached to the St. Clair Police Station.
Police reports stated officers were conducting the exercise between the hours of 8 pm and 11.40 pm when a man dressed in a black jersey marked ‘Police’ with a Police Service logo on the front, reportedly started shouting at the officers and inciting persons to ignore police instructions.
He was cautioned but violently pulled away when an officer at the scene attempted to arrest him. The man was restrained and arrested for disorderly behaviour, obstructing a police officer and resisting arrest.
He was then taken to the Tunapuna Police Station where he was later identified as a Special Reserve Police Constable attached to the St Clair police station.
Investigations are ongoing. The exercise was supervised by Cpl Bissoon and included officers of the DUI Task Force and the St. Joseph Police Station.
