Nelson Henry in trouble again after police altercation

He was already out on bail for a serious offence of aggravated burglary and unlawful imprisonment. But today Nelson Henry was back in court charged with aggravated assault, this time of a police officer. Twenty-eight year old Henry was acquitted a month ago of a murder charge in the death of Edward Lord. Days later, he and others were accused of entering the home of a woman, to allegedly steal. During the burglary two men were also unlawfully held hostage. In court Henry, who pleaded not guilty, was allowed bail by Magistrate Michelle Trapp for one thousand dollars which he met after no objection was raised by the prosecution. On February twenty-third at Chon Sing Restaurant, Corporal Benedict Castillo approached Henry to detain him after he was seen throwing a Belikin pint bottle to the ground, breaking it. Henry appeared to swing his hand, containing another Belikin pint, at the officer.
