Belize City Man Loses Leg After Purposely Being Crushed With A Vehicle

Devon Jones

A man who allegedly used his vehicle as a deadly weapon was today charged with maim and aggravated assault. Police believe that thirty-three year old electrician Devon Jones deliberately reversed his vehicle into forty-two year old Francis Gill. The incident happened at around twelve forty-five Saturday morning, when Gill was buying food at the Key Ley restaurant on Freetown Road. Reports are that Gill got into a fight with Jones, and that’s when Jones reversed his Chevy Blazer onto the curb and against the building, crushing Gill’s foot against a black metal door. Gill was rushed to the KHMH where doctors had to perform an emergency surgery. They were unable to save his leg, and it had to be amputated. Chief Magistrate Anne Marie Smith offered Jones bail in the sum of three thousand dollars, while Gill is recovering from the injuries to his left leg.


Supt. Hilberto Romero, Crimes Investigation Branch

“He reported that he had an altercation with Devon Jones. As a result Devon Jones then reversed his vehicle into him, causing an injury to his foot. He was taken to the KHMH where his foot had to be amputated. Devon Jones has now been charged for maim and aggravated assault and will be taken to court today.”


Jones was also ordered to surrender his travel documents and to report to the Queen Street Police Station every Thursday. The file has been handed over to the D.P.P. for the consideration of a further charge of attempted murder.

    This dude definitely has a dog mentality. The irony of all this will be that after all the police paper work and arrest work, this guy will win his case in court.

    Cheryle Lynn Vidal is one of the nation’s most incompetent attorneys. Her office will screw this case up.

    Remember this.
