By BBN Saff: Belize City resident, 28-year-old Raheem Reid is on remand at the Belize Central Prison after being charged with pulling a gun on a police officer and resisting arrest.

Reid appeared in the Belize City Magistrate’s Court on Monday where he was read a charge of aggravated assault, and another for resisting arrest, and pleaded not guilty to both charges.

Since the alleged offense was committed with a firearm, he was denied bail and remanded to the Belize Central Prison until August.

While in court, the magistrate saw injuries on his face and asked Reid how he got them, to which he responded that the officer that arrested him beat him up while in the station. When asked, Reid told the magistrate that he has already made a formal report to the police regarding the incident.

The allegation against Reid is that on Saturday, June 11, he approached a police constable, pointing a gun at him and complaining that police keep brutalizing him. Reid is also accused of struggling and refusing to be detained after he was informed that he would be arrested for aggravated assault.
