| 19/10/2010

(CNS): Police have now confirmed that a 48 year old man has been arrested in connection with an alleged assault which took place in Bodden Town last Wednesday evening. Police have not named the individual but CNS has learned that former PPM representative for the district and local businessman, Osbourne Bodden was the man arrested on suspicion of ABH yesterday. Police said that Bodden has been released on police bail while enquiries continue. Bodden’s arrest is in connection with a reported incident in which Kurt Watler of Bodden Town, claims Bodden beat him with a cow cod (a bull’s penis) at around 6:30pm in a public area in front of a number of witnesses on the Bodden Town Road.

Watler told CNS that he sustained various injuries to his back and hand and intends to pursue his complaint against the former MLA. He said the public at large should not take the law into their own hands when they are victims of assault but should pursue their complaints through the proper police channels. Watler said he had every confidence the RCIPS would take his complaint seriously.
Bodden in turn stated that now the case was with the legal department the facts would be reviewed and the truth told he was confident that he would very soon be vindicated.
