Yesterday we told you of the aggravated assault charge that the Commander of Police’s Eastern Division North, ACP Dezerie Phillips told the media would be levied against Douglas Grant Jr. of Belmopan following an altercation on Sunday morning with Paul Ferguson.  Up to news time, that charge had not been levied against Grant and it had nothing to do with the police department not carrying out their duties.  As a matter of fact, Love News was reliably informed that Ferguson went into the station last night and withdrew the complaint against Grant.  Ferguson’s motive for doing so is not known but from our understanding the matter was settled out of court and it included an apology from Grant to Ferguson.
