Canefield man taken into custody after allegedly pushing two cops

Legal men on Sunday night arrested the driver of a Canefield hire car after he allegedly pushed two senior police officers into a drain in New Amsterdam.

Furthermore, another 17 people were arrested at the scene for violating the COVID-19 restrictions in place.

According to information gathered, at around 11.30 pm on Sunday, a Joint Services patrol in New Amsterdam noticed a large gathering detonating at a location.

The people were not wearing masks at the time. As such, the ranks struggled to arrest those gathered when the driver of the hire car began behaving disorderly.

Despite police warnings, the man is alleged to have continued his disorderly conduct and pushed a corporation into a nearby drain.

After the man noticed an Inspector recording the incident he became more agitated and struck the mobile phone from her hand and subsequently pushed her into the said drain.

Police then arrested the man and placed the others in custody pending an investigation.
