ATTORNEY AT LAW Marlon Markland Gordon was granted bail of $3 000 with one surety when he appeared in the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court No. 1 today.

He faced charges of assault occasioning actual bodily harm to a police officer, insulting language and three counts of resisting police in the execution of duty.

Gordon, whose left hand was in a cast, was flanked by several attorneys.

The matters were adjourned to the District “B” Magistrates’ Court where he is expected to answer the charges on September 10.

According to police, around 5 a.m. yesterday, officers responded to a report at Plae, Rising Sun, Christ Church, where a fete was being held.

It is alleged that while Gordon was being arrested for an offence, he resisted a police officer and other officers assisted in subduing him.  A female police officer reportedly had to seek medical attention. (SD/PR)
