Premier Alden McLaughlin’s political assistant Kenneth Bryan was charged Friday in connection with an incident in October in the parking lot of a local nightclub.
According to a police statement: “A George Town male was charged by officers at George Town Police Station for assaulting police and using threatening and abusive language. The arrest relates to an incident on Saturday, Oct. 11, in the parking lot of a West Bay Road nightclub.”
Although the police statement did not identify the man, the Cayman Compass has confirmed that it was Mr. Bryan who had been charged. As of Friday, the premier’s office said Mr. Bryan was still employed.
Mr. Bryan, a former TV news reporter and candidate of the Progressives party, declined to comment when contacted by the Compass.
He was released on bail to appear in Summary Court on Jan. 12.
