…locked up after challenging police to fight
Embattled Skeldon Estate Manager, Dave Kumar, who in recent times has been involved in a number of drunken scenarios, was at it again. This time he was arrested and locked up after he openly abused and challenged, chucked and threatened the police officers who had intervened.
According to reports, around 21:30 hrs on Friday the police were conducting patrols in the Corriverton area and Kumar, who was reportedly in a drunken state, was being driven in a Guysuco vehicle when it was stopped by ranks on patrol. The Manager immediately became abusive.
Kumar, a police source said, was cautioned about his behaviour, but he continued using expletives.
The driver was asked to turn on the interior lights and Kumar reportedly launched into a series of expletives at the police.
Kumar was again warned of his behaviour, but refused to desist. The police decided that it was time to have Kumar step out of the vehicle. The Manager declined and reported issued a challenge to the police.
The driver was then asked to drive into the compound, a request with which he complied.
Kumar was eventually removed from the vehicle and taken into the station, but not without some resistance.
He reportedly even challenged the officers to a fight, eventually chucking a few of them. He was eventually booked and placed in the lockup.According to the source the Manager who is a regular guest at the Gill and other night clubs is no stranger to altercations. A few Saturdays ago he was involving in another fiasco at the said Night Spot. He was also beaten in a fight at one of the night clubs after one of his drunken escapades.
Charges are likely for this latest episode.
