Competitor Assaulted Police

Bermuda -- An international taekwondo fighter representing Bermuda has been given a suspended prison sentence following an assault on police, according to royalgazette.com.

Police reportedly attempted to stop the 21-year-old man, seeing him disobeying a traffic sign at a street junction in Warwick.

After following him for some time, police forced him to stop. When officers attempted to talk to the man, he refused to turn off his motorcycle.

The martial arts competitor then accelerated his bike hitting and knocking one of the officers to the ground before making a u-turn. He then reportedly elbowed the other officer in the face causing him to lose balance.
