An Emergency Medical Respondent attached to the Georgetown Public Hospital was on Friday slapped with dangerous/drunk driving and other charges. Devon Nestor appeared before Magistrate Clive Nurse at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts where seven charges were read to him.
Nestor was charged with four counts of dangerous driving; one count of failing to give right away; one count of failing to stop when directed by police and one count of driving a motor vehicle while his breath alcohol level exceeded the prescribed limit.
He pleaded not guilty to all seven charges. On two of the charges, he was granted $30,000 bail each; while on the others, he was released on self-bail.
Facts presented by the court Prosecutor stated that on September 1, last, Nestor was the driver of motorcar PMM 1760 which overtook a double lane of traffic on Mandela Avenue in Georgetown.
The court heard he was signalled to stop by a Police Constable but ignored and continued further up en route to the East Bank of Demerara with the Police rank hot in his pursuit. The driver eventually stopped at Eccles, East Bank Demerara where he was arrested.
Nestor was instructed to make his next court appearance on September 30, 2021.
