Court twist: Man learns he's wanted while in Traffic Court

Two persons charged with a number of traffic offences appeared before a Bridgetown Magistrate yesterday.

While Deandra Alayssa Crawford was granted bail, Tremaine Tito Blenman was remanded after it was revealed that a warrant was out for his arrest.

Twenty-three-year-old Crawford of Rendevous Terrace, Christ Church was not required to plead to the three traffic charges. Police allege that she fraudulently allowed Tremayne Blenman to use registration number plates on a Nissan Tiida on St. Lawrence Main Road and also permitted Blenman to drive the same vehicle knowing he was not a holder of a driver's licence. The vehicle was also not registered with the Licensing Authority.

Crawford was granted $1500 bail and asked to appear in the District 'A' Traffic Court on September 25.

Blenman 30, of Wildey, St. Michael faced charges relating to the assault of Rasheed Phillips, driving without a licence, failing to stop at the sound of a siren and fraudulent use of number plates on a Nissan Tiida while on St. Lawrence Main Road.

Blenman was not required to plead and was also asked to return to District 'A' Traffic Court on September 25. However, the prosecution revealed that a warrant was out for Blenman's arrest. Blenman missed a June 2018 court date in relation to a drug matter. He was charged with three drug offences with occurred on December 17, 2013, and is currently on bail. However, he also failed to report to the required police station which is a condition of his bail. 

Blenman said he stopped reporting because every time he reported he was met with a "confrontation".

Magistrate Douglas Frederick remanded him until August 21.
