41-Year-Old Pleads Guilty To Obstructing Police

September 11, 2015

Appearing in Magistrates Court today [Sept 11], a 41-year-old admitted willfully obstructing police and using offensive words  earlier this month.

Omar Young pleaded guilty to willfully obstructing police and using offensive words on 9th September 2015.

The Crown Prosecutor told Magistrate Khamisi Tokunbo that early afternoon on 9th September, Mr Young had gone through a police speed check. Pulled over by the police, he became argumentative and was eventually arrested and handcuffed and taken to the Police Station.

Asked by the Magistrate where he had spent the last two nights, Mr Young replied that he had been in the police cells.

The Magistrate told Mr Young that in future he should simply cooperate with police, and that he had decided that the punishment of spending two days and nights in the police cells was sufficient punishment for the offences.

The Magistrate ordered that Mr Young should be released from Police custody.
