By Breaking Belize News Staff: An American woman residing in Belize has been remanded to the Belize Central Prison pending a psychiatric evaluation following a chaotic appearance in court on Tuesday.

Adeola Lara Ade-Ekisola, 38, appeared in court unrepresented to answer to a charge of assault against a police officer, however, her bizarre appearance led the Chief Magistrate to have many questions about her mental state.

In court, Ekisola had to restrained in a straight jacket as she was deemed to be a danger to others. As the Magistrate spoke, she kept speaking over the Magistrate and rambling off. She claimed her life is in danger in the US and she is homeless in Belize and seeking asylum. She also claimed to be a diabetic and said that she suffers from schizophrenia.

It was at this point the Chief Magistrate decided a psychiatric evaluation and remanded Ekisola into custody until April 4. According to police, on February 20, Ekisola was arrested after she allegedly threw stones at a female police officer on King Street.
