The 26 year old man at the centre of a weekend incident in Dennery that went viral on social media, has been remanded in custody at Bordelais Correctional Facility (BCF) after appearing in court.
Kennis Charles of Marc, Bexon, was charged with obstructing the police in their duties, using insulting words, resisting arrest and assaulting the police.
He is expected to make another court appearance in Vieux Fort next week.
Charles was seen in a video walking behind a police officer and shouting insults at him.
The officer left the scene where an agitated crowd had gathered, returned with armed backup and Charles was arrested after purring up resistance.
Acting Police Commissioner, Milton Desir, said this week that persons in the crowd were behaving in a lawless manner while the police officer was trying to perform his duties.
However, Desir said he was happy that no one was injured in the incident and he commended the police officers involved for exercising restraint.
It was reported that the controversy started after the police stopped a motorcyclist to obtain information about the bike he was riding and others intervened.
