Another charge also alleged that on October 17, he unlawfully and maliciously damaged one Uniform pants valued $3,500, the property of the Guyana Police Force, belonging to Keifer Henry.

However, the Prosecution who had no objection to substantial bail, explained that the virtual complainant was on traffic duty when he observed Wilson committing an offence.
Wilson, who was cautioned, allegedly behaved disorderly towards Officer Henry when he tried to arrest him which then led to a scuffle between the two.
Bail was granted and he will make his next court appearance on November 13.
