McCoy on assault charges

-released on self bail

 

Office of the President (OP) press officer Kwame McCoy was this morning placed on self-bail after he was arraigned on three charges, including two separate counts of assault.

Two charges against McCoy stem from an altercation with Clifton Stewart on D’Urban Street, Lodge over the removal of A Partnership for National Unity (APNU) posters, during which he is accused of hitting the man in the head with a gun during the argument. The other charge against him stems from an incident where he allegedly ran into a woman with his car.

The first charge against McCoy is that on November 12, on Norton Street, he assaulted Stewart with the intent to cause actual bodily harm. The second charge is that on the same day, he also made use of threatening language to Stewart, thereby causing a breach of the peace.

The third charge stated that on October 25, he allegedly unlawfully assaulted Natalia Ross with intent to cause her actual bodily harm.

McCoy pleaded not guilty to all three charges when they were read to him at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court One.

Acting Chief Magistrate Priya Sewnarine-Beharry, before whom the matter was called, granted McCoy bail on his own recognizance on the condition that he hands over his passport to the authorities. McCoy was further placed on a bond to keep the peace, pending the determination of the matter that will be recalled on February 21, 2012.
