FOR calling the police “fully dunce” a man has been placed on bond for three years.

Should Peter Wellington breach the $5,000 bond to keep the peace, he will be taken back before the court to be sentenced.

Wellington, 23 of Chagauans yesterday appeared before magistrate Nikolas Ali at the Chaguanas Court.

He pleaded guilty to disorderly behaviour and using insulting language.

It was last week Friday, around 5 p.m. that constable Ramkissoon and other officers were on foot patrol at Busy Corner Chaguanas when they saw Wellington seated in a car. The seatbelt was over his shoulder but not across his waist. He told about this and asked for his driver’s permit and insurance. He handed over the documents.

Wellington however began behaving disorderly and also shouted “All yuh police fully dunce.”

Constable Villafana and other offices arrested and took him to the Chaguanas police station where he was charged by constables Humphrey and Ramdeen.

At his appearance before Ali, Wellington was placed on a $5,000 bond to keep the peace and be of good behaviour for three years.
