By BBN Staff: Forty one year old, Gaylon Foreman, a deaf mute with a swollen genital condition, was hauled into #2 Magistrate’s court this afternoon in Belize City.
He could barely walk but still showed up to answer to the charge of aggravated assault with a firearm which was read to him with the assistance of an interpreter.
Foreman pleaded not guilty to the charge but Magistrate Aretha Ford explained that bail could not be offered because of the nature of the offence.
He was as a result remanded into custody until November 8.
Magistrate Ford ordered that he be taken to the hospital for medical attention before he was taken to prison.
On May 5 on Poinsetta Street in Ladyville, Lyon Bennett, reported to police that Forman pointed a chrome object at him that resembled a firearm.
