Man charged with kicking police officer

A 23-year-old man was charged with voluntarily causing hurt to a police officer. 

Zacchaeus Raphale Jr. allegedly kicked a police officer twice on the left shoulder while travelling in a police vehicle in the early hours of November 10. 

Raphale had earlier been arrested by police at Teban Gardens Road at about 5am for behaving in a disorderly manner by shouting loudly and gesticulating. 

He allegedly kicked the police officer - with the intent to deter him from discharging his duties - as the car travelled along the Ayer-Rajah Expressway. 

If convicted, he can be sentenced to seven years' jail, fined and caned. 

As Raphale had been previously convicted of disorderly behaviour, he faces a fine of $2,000 and a jail term of six months if convicted of a subsequent offence.
