By BBN Staff: A member of the Belize Coast Guard will be spending some time in prison after an alleged argument with his girlfriend took a dangerous turn.
Thirty-one-year-old Evan Welch was arraigned before the Belize City Magistrate’s Court on Thursday, on a charge of aggravated assault upon his girlfriend. Reports are that during an argument he pulled a glass beer bottle and waved it threateningly at her causing her to fear for her life.
Welch was unrepresented in court when he pleaded not guilty.
While the prosecution had no objection to bail, the Senior Magistrate said that she did not feel comfortable granting Welch bail at this time, given the serious nature of the offense, and remanded him to the Belize Central Prison until December 13, 2021.
