Vendors charged with disorderly behaviour after courtroom argument


TWO vendors appeared in Court yesterday on charges of disorderly behaviour and resisting and assaulting a peace officer.
Harold Sampson and Morris Stanton (no addresses given) pleaded not guilty, before Acting Chief Magistrate Priya Sewnarine-Beharry, to a joint charge which stated that, on September 28, at Georgetown Magistrates’ Court, they behaved in a disorderly manner.

It was also alleged that, on the same date, Sampson unlawfully assaulted and resisted arrest by Colin Douglas, a peace officer acting in execution of his duties and he denied those allegations, too.
Police Inspector Stephen Telford, prosecuting, said the defendants were awaiting trial in another court on a previous charge and argued inside the courtroom.
The Prosecutor said they were cautioned about their conduct but continued.
Each defendant was put on $25,000 bail until October 20.
