Jamaica News, March 14, 2018 – Montego Bay Police Officer Allegedly Breaks Man Foot at Baywest                                                         

Montego Bay, Jamaica (McKoy’s News) –  The Independent Commission of Investigation (INDECOM) has now launched a full investigation into a confrontation between a police officer and a Back-up man in downtown Montego Bay on Tuesday evening.

The Back-up man suffered a fractured ankle during the incident and also ended up being arrested for the use of expletives.

Reports are that shortly after 3:00 p.m. on Tuesday, March 13, the police officer who is assigned to the Freeport Traffic Department was on patrol duties along Harbor Street in downtown Montego Bay. The officer went over to caution a bus operator who was operating illegally from a makeshift Falmouth taxi stand, in the vicinity of the Bay West Shopping Centre.

On seeing the policeman approaching, the bus operator drove away and the officer then turned to the man who is known as “Bruce”, and who acts as a Back-up man from that said location.

It is further reported that the officer was in the process of cautioning the accused when he began to use a number of expletives.

The officer then reached for his handcuff and walked over to the accused, while informing him that he was going to arrest him for the use of the expletives.

The accused man refrained from being locked up and it resulted in a physical confrontation with the officer.  The officer pulled his baton and allegedly used it to hit the accused to a section of his ankle which resulted in it being fractured.

The officer then called for back up and the man was later taken to hospital where he was treated and reportedly charged for the use of expletives.

In the meanwhile, several eyewitnesses are now crying foul and are saying the use of force by the officer was not necessary because the accused man was not a threat.

A team from INDECOM say they are aware of the incident and are now carrying out investigations.
