By Aaron Humes: An internal quarrel has led police to charge one of their own with assaulting a brother officer.
According to Dangriga Police, this past Saturday, Constables Tyrell Rowley and Javon Logan were on duty at the town’s police station on Commerce Street. They had an argument over a firearm and began to struggle.
Rowley allegedly pushed Logan into the filing cabinet and held him at gunpoint with his Department-issued nine-millimeter pistol; Logan had his own Department-issued weapon in his hand but was pointing it down.
The men were separated and their guns taken away. Following an investigation, Rowley, originally from Belize City, was arrested and charged with aggravated assault, common assault, and damage to property. He likely faces interdiction and internal disciplinary charges in relation to the incident as well.
