Apologetically, Jeremy Nibbs told the court that his actions following an incident that occurred on August 3, were a result of him being on medication and consuming alcohol.

In an appearance earlier today, December 16 at the Magistrate’s Court, Nibbs said, “I was out of control; I wasn’t myself.”

He pleaded guilty to the charges of criminal damage to government property, namely a chair valued at $250; two counts of disorderly conduct--on the Greenland public road and at the East End Police Station; and indecent language to an officer.

He pleaded not guilty to the offence of assault with intent to prevent lawful apprehension.

The particulars of the matter outlined that on August 3rd, officers of the East End Police Station attended to a domestic dispute between the accused and his girlfriend on the Greenland main road.

Following attempts by the officers to settle the matter, the accused got mad and began cursing the officers.

After being tazed and apprehended by officers, he became hysterical and kicked one of the officers in their face, in addition to destroying a chair.

He was offered bail in the sum of $20,000. He will make another appearance on February 17th, 2017.
