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.
