Police say they arrested a scooter rider Saturday night and took him to hospital after he injured himself attempting to evade a traffic check.
They say the incident occurred at La Caye, Dennery after 7.00 pm.
A senior law enforcement official told St Lucia Times that the man ended up in someone’s yard.
As a result, the rider sustained cuts and bruises, the official disclosed.
Reports from the community had indicated that the incident resulted in tension between law enforcers and some residents.
A video on social media showed three officers in uniform near a zinc fence.
A man is shouting in the background.
“Don’t worry with them – they’re scaredy-cats,” the man, the man whom individuals identified as an officer, says.
But a law enforcement official reported that the situation was ‘calm’ shortly afterwards.
