The son of former Prime Minister, Samuel Hinds, found himself in Court again today, this time facing several charges related to allegedly pointing a gun at Police officers and driving under the influence of alcohol.
38-year-old Samuel Hinds Jr. appeared in Court this morning before Magistrate Clive Nurse and pleaded not guilty to the charges.
The Court was told that on the 9th May at Main Street, Georgetown, Hinds resisted arrest from Police Constable Canterbury, during the execution of his duties.
It is further alleged that Hinds behaved in a disorderly manner, allegedly assaulted Police Constable Canterbury and refused to submit himself to a breathalyzer test.
Hinds Jr. pleaded not guilty to all of the charges and and although the Prosecutor objected to bail, he was granted bail in the sum of $50,000 and ordered to return to Court on June 12 for the continuation of the matters.
There are reports that other charges could be filed against Hinds as the Police investigation is ongoing and he is also being accused of pointing a firearm at the traffic police ranks who stopped him as he headed home from a nightspot.
Back in 2015, Hinds was found guilty and sentenced to two months in jail for the assault of his sister-in-law.
