Windscreen cleaner sentenced for using expletives

A windshield cleaner was sentenced to 10 days' imprisonment recently in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court for using expletives to a senior superintendent of police.

Charged with uttering expletives and breaches of the Main Roads Act is Jonathan Bennett.

Bennett pleaded guilty to both offences.

The court heard that the senior policeman was in traffic and told Bennett not to wipe his windscreen, to which he hurled expletives at the officer.

The court heard that Bennett threatened to go for a gun and shoot up the policeman and the officer went after him and caught him with the help of other police personnel.

Bennett has denied that allegation.

Senior Resident Magistrate Judith Pusey then handed down her sentence of 10 days for each charge, to run concurrently.
