BASSETERRE, St.Kitts (Thursday 16th November 2023)-Former government minister Lindsay Grant has been convicted of two (2) charges namely Battery of a Police Officer, and Assaulting a Police Officer in relation to a 2022 Las Lap Bar incident.

A police spokesperson on Thursday 16th November 2023 informed members of the local media that: “Lindsay Grant was convicted on two (2) charges: Battery of a Police Officer, and Assaulting a Police Officer. The offences were committed on January 8th, 2022, at Last Lap Bar in Bird Rock, St. Kitts.”

It was further reported that Grant’s sentence will be passed on November 21st 2023.

In March 2022, about two months  after the alleged altercation made by a woman police officer accusing then government minister Lindsay Grant following an incident at Las Lap Bar in Bird Rock which took place in January 2022 was filed in a police complaint.

A summons to defendant document dated 2nd March 2022 addressed to Grant spoke to a complaint made that “you on Saturday the 08th day of January 2022 at Basseterre in the Parish of St. George in the Magisterial District “A” in the Federation of St. Christopher and Nevis did beat Kerese Howe a member of the Royal St. Christopher and Nevis Police Force while in the execution of her duty.” 

That document did not include the date when the officer’s complaint was made which some members of the public have been questioning. 

Police information informed that the incident involved three police officers. This media house had gathered from videos on the night in question, that the officers were on COVID-19 protocol duties.   

In one of the cellphone footage videos circulated via social media on 10th January, the woman police office is heard saying in part: “Ah here by Las Lap and because I am here  and we speaking to Mr. Grant, he got all kinda tings goin on…the minister of government, I am not playing with him…” 

In that 0:45 seconds video, she is seen while talking on her cellphone call with-according to reliable information reaching this media house- is her superior who is a superintendent. 

Grant, of the People’s Action Movement (PAM), is also former Deputy Leader of that party politics organisation. He contested the Constituency Four seat in the August 2022 General Elections which was won by Samal Duggins of the ruling St.Kitts-Nevis Labour Party (SKNLP).
