The Attorney-at-law, who greeted a traffic police rank an expletive laced rant, will now face five criminal charges.
The Guyana Police Force has announced that its legal adviser, after reviewing the file on the matter, has advised that the Attorney be charged with Prohibition of Tinted Glass, Failure to Produce Driver’s Licence, Driving an Unfit Motor Vehicle, Use of Obscene Language and Riotous Behaviour.
He will make his appearance at the Mahaicony Magistrates’ Court on Friday.
Crawford was summoned to the Police at Whim earlier this week to provide a statement on the matter. During the questioning, he was asked to produce the documents for the vehicle.
It was then that it was realised that the vehicle documents were only renewed after the traffic stop a few days earlier. It was during that stop that he refused to provide his driver’s license and went off on a foul mouthed tirade against the traffic cop.
In the video,the Attorney berated the officer for stopping him, declaring that he must give him a reason for stopping him.
When the Officer responded that he observed the vehicle and observed that he could not have observed the driver properly, the Attorney responded with a profanity laced objection to being stopped, claiming that he was behind two trucks.
“I was behind two trucks, so what you telling me man, what s@#%t you telling me man? What F$%#ing nonsense you telling me? What F%$#ing nonsense? Hello, My name is Ryan F@#$ing Crawford, you tell them, whoever you taking to, Attorney-at-F#@%ing-Law, you hear me? So F#$k you”, the Attorney declared.
The entire outburst was captured on camera and the Attorney eventually apologised on his Facebook page for his choice of language.
