Neal Miguel Eversley of Lot 2 Dolphin Park, St Patricks, was fined and given two suspended prison sentences. He admitted to the offences when he first appeared in the District ‘C’ Magistrates’ Court last month.
The charges included using abusive language, resisting and assaulting Police Constable Cheryl Thompson on October 5. Further, that he assaulted a second constable, Edison Rock, on the same day.
Eversley was sentenced by Magistrate Christopher Birch to six months for assaulting Thompson – which was suspended for two years. He was fined $1 000 to be paid in three months for using abusive language towards her.
He was further convicted, reprimanded and discharged for resisting the cop and reprimanded and discharged for assaulting her colleague.
Sergeant Azel Skeete’s facts described to the court how Eversley went to Central Police Station on October 5 and began beating on a desk, speaking loudly and demanding to know if anyone was in the station.
When Constable Thompson approached him, he asked whether his brother Lamar was at that police station and was told that he was not. Eversley began behaving in an aggressive manner and Thompson cautioned him about it.
He continued to be boisterous and aggressive and she asked him to leave. He refused and his behaviour continued. Eversley then told the female officer: “I gine **** you up.”
Thompson told Eversley that his words were abusive, it was an offence and she was going to arrest him. When she tried to do so, he pulled away from her, pushed her in the chest and ran out of the station.
Constable Rock, having just entered and realising what had happened, gave chase. However, when he reached Eversley, the defendant pushed him as well, causing the constable to stumble. Others officers came to Rock’s assistance, subdued Eversley and returned him to the station where he was later charged.
Eversley also confessed to Magistrate Birch that he broke into Heather Davey’s house between August 29 and September 12, 2015 and stole a computer, printer and other items. Magistrate Birch fined him $1 500 in three months or six months in prison.
His last offence was stealing a $9 000 car belonging to Richie Sealy on September 27. For that, he was sentenced to two years in jail, suspended for two years.
Davey’s items were recovered but the car is yet to be located.
