A simple misdemeanor turned into a huge debacle between officers of the Royal Virgin Islands Police Force and Marlon Senhouse, who is now facing a total of eight charges.

In an appearance before the Magistrate’s Court yesterday, May 15, Senhouse pleaded not guilty to the offences of disorderly conduct, failure to comply with police instructions, indecent language, resisting arrest, reckless and negligent act, threatening language, failing to stop at the sound of a siren and driving a motor vehicle while not secured by a seatbelt.

The charges stem from an incident that occurred on June 15, 2013 in Wickams Cay.

The particulars of the matter revealed that officers observed the accused driving a vehicle in the vicinity of Scotia Bank in Road Town, while not wearing a seatbelt.

Having signaled Senhouse, in addition to the siren of the police car blaring, the court heard that the accused refused to stop the vehicle, and continued on until he parked at Wickams Cay.

He then left the vehicle and allegedly ran behind Bolo’s Department Store, when officers again asked him to stop.

He snuck his way back to the vehicle, when officers again asked him to stop, to which he shouted, “F*** you; I ain't stopping for you all”.

The court heard that he then drove off in the direction of an officer, who had to quickly jump out of the way.

He got stuck, which is when the officers made a quick arrest.

Exiting the vehicle, Senhouse allegedly told the officers, “Let me the f*** go. Why you don’t go catch them murderers. I gon kill one a y’all ***** *****.”

He will make another appearance on July 4.
