High on drugs, man injures cop while resisting arrest in Dubai
The accused kept screaming and tried to get back inside his car.
A man, who was high on drugs, resisted being handcuffed by anti-narcotics police officers and injured one of them, the Dubai Court of First Instance has heard.
Public prosecution records show that the incident took place on February 25. A case was registered at Al Rashidiya police station.
The defendant, an Arab, has been charged with resisting on-duty anti-narcotics officers and using drugs.
He has been detained.
A police officer said that at 6pm, he went with other narcotics officers to the car showrooms in Al Aweer. "The defendant was spotted in his car. As we took him out of his car, he put up stiff resistance and tried to run away. He said that no police could handcuff him."
The accused kept screaming and tried to get back inside his car. "I got injured as I tried to handcuff him. He would not obey our instructions."
The officer later got a medical report showing he was left with scratches and minor hand injuries.
A report from the General Directorate of Forensics showed that the defendant's urine sample contained traces of crystal meth and amphetamine.
The court will pass a ruling on July 21.
