A man accused of kicking a police officer in the face after daring the cop to taser him pleaded guilty to four of five charges today when he appeared before the Magistrate’s Court.
Jeremy Nibbs pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct, using indecent language, disorderly conduct at a police station, and criminal damage.
He however pleaded not guilty to the fifth charge – assault with intent to prevent lawful apprehension.
Magistrate Ayanna Baptiste DaBreo then granted the offender $20,000 bail.
Reports are that on August 3 this year police were called to Greenland public road. Upon arrival, they saw Nibbs and his girlfriend entangled in a brawl which caused traffic obstruction in the area.
The police approached Nibbs and told him to desist from restraining his girlfriend.
Nibbs reportedly continued to behave disorderly and was further warned to desist or he would have been tasered.
“Tase me you white m#ther sc**t; tase me,” Nibbs reportedly said.
Police subsequently shot him with the taser gun.
When taken to the East End Police Station, Nibbs started to resist the police.
He allegedly kicked an officer in the face and had to be restrained by several other cops.
He damaged a chair at the police station, the court heard.
Meanwhile in court, Nibbs stated: “I was on medication and I was drinking alcohol… It is my fault.”
He however added that he did not assault the police officer.
He is scheduled to return to court on February 17.
