Calbert Reynolds

Well-known attorney and former D.P.P. Prosecutor, Leeroy Banner is the victim of an assault. Banner claims he was assaulted by two men on August twenty-sixth, 2017 at the Cricket Field in Double Head Cabbage.  Today, one of the alleged attackers, Calbert Reynolds, a former ex-prison officer was taken to the Belize City Magistrate’s Court and arraigned for aggravated assault and one count of threatening words upon Banner.  Reynolds pleaded not guilty to both charges. He told the acting Chief Magistrate, Sharon Fraser that he was not aware of the charges until about ten minutes before they took him to court. Banner claims Reynolds was armed with a Belikin bottle and a cricket bat when he assaulted him and threatened to burst his face.
