A city businessman was on Friday arraigned with a threatening behaviour charge when he appeared at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts for pointing his firearm at a man with whom he had a confrontation.
Mohamed Din pleaded not guilty to the charge after it was read to him. The charge stated that on July 10, while being a licence firearm holder, he pointed same at Patrick Williams.
In his defense, he told the court that he and Williams had gotten into a minor motor vehicle accident and Williams got out of the car and knock on his vehicle window. According to the defendant, he placed his hand on his firearm which was in the middle compartment of his vehicle because he was scared. He further noted that the altercation happened in Albouystown an area.
After listening to his explanation, Magistrate Leron Daly granted bail in the sum of $10,000.
The matter was adjourned until July 16.
