Cops charged with firing guns at dance
The Independent Commission of Investigations (INDECOM) has charged two Clarendon-based policemen with firing their guns recklessly at a dance three years ago.
Constables Orlando Rowe and Michael Rowe are charged with discharging a firearm within 40 feet of a public thoroughfare.
When they appeared before the Clarendon Parish Court before Parish Judge Anmarie Nembhard yesterday, the men were told to reappear in court on June 15.
Allegations are that on November 3, 2014, at about 4 a.m., the accused cops were at a dance in Clarendon when they drew their firearms and started firing in a celebratory style, while a particular song was been played.
A report was made about the incident. Forensic test was carried out on the bullet casings and eyewitness statements were also collected.
The INDECOM probe resulted in the policemen being charged.
