A man who allegedly tried to obtain a drivers license with fake documents is in custody for injuring an off-duty police officer at the offices of the Barbados Licensing Authority.

The off-duty officer was among the people at the office to transact business when another customer presented documents that Licensing Authority officials rejected as fraudulent.

When the customer became unruly the officer intervened and there was a scuffle in which the policeman was injured.

The suspect was later taken into custody.
Chief Licensing Officer, Virgil Knight, describes what transpired.


Mr. Knight warns against trying to present fake document at the Licensing Department.
