EAST END, Tortola, VI- Police have arrested a man who was suspected to be intoxicated while the driver of a vehicle involved in a 2-vehicle accident at Brandywine Bay on Friday evening, February 26, 2021.

The man had allegedly used indecent language against the other driver in the accident and also against police.

According to reports, the man was observed having slurred speech and unable to keep his balance.

When approached by officers, the man turned this indecent language assault on police officers which resulted in him being arrested. He allegedly resisted arrest but police managed to subdue him and placed him in their vehicle.

Escape attempt foiled

However, as the vehicle headed towards the East End Police Station, the man allegedly jumped out of the moving vehicle and made a mad rush into some bushes.

Police; however, caught up with him and allegedly had to use a taser gun on him since he was reportedly still putting up a fight.

The man allegedly still attempted to run away after being tased but was pursued and caught.

    What type o 3 stooges officers are they. Police cars aren’t even supposed to be able to open from inside. Sounds like big amateur operations. At least put the childproof lock and lock the windows by gosh.

      Read to understand and not to comment only. I was forced to read the article again after reading your comment about one car, 2 drivers. The drunk was involved in a 2 cars accident. He cursed out the driver of the other vehicle and he also cursed the police. Hope this helped
