Ex-Prisoner Arrested Again Hours After Being Released

While a man was celebrating his three-year release from prison, he got drunk and ended up back in jail after resisting arrest and lightly injuring a police officer’s arm.
Mohammed M. Mahdi, a 40-year-old man of Libyan descent, was detained on Saturday at around 3:20 pm while out with friends in Spinola Gardens in St. Julian’s, a court heard on Monday.

With glass bottles in their hands, the group complied when the police got involved with the exception of Mahdi, who, the court was informed during his arraignment, seized a police officer and twisted his arm.
After being detained, he was escorted to the St. Julian’s police station, where he insulted two additional on-duty policemen. Mahdi, who is now sober, pleaded not guilty to charges of insulting, threatening, and assault. The arrested man claimed that he was celebrating the “start of a new life”.

Bail was not granted by the court due to concerns that the man would not be able to abide by bail conditions.
