Motorcyclist who struck down cop at roadblock arrested

The motorcyclist crashing into the cop

A motorcyclist is now in police custody after he struck down and injured a policeman while trying to evade a roadblock on the Houston Public Road, East Bank Demerara (EBD), in the wee hours of Saturday.
Reports are that police ranks were conducting a stop-and-search exercise on the Houston Public Road at about 02:05h on Saturday, and one of them, who was holding a reflector in his hand, was urging the rider of motorcycle CL 6778 to stop; but the motorcyclist failed to adhere to the order, and, in accelerating, crashed into one of the ranks in his bid to escape.
Both the rank and the motorcyclist sustained injuries as a result of this collision, and they were both
taken to the Georgetown Public Hospital, where both were treated. The motorcyclist has been arrested, and remains in custody pending charges. (G9)
