On October 28, 2017, WPC Crystal Noralez attached to Eastern Police Division North Strike Team reported that while working at the Sit and Sip Lounge at 2:45 a.m. along with other officers, a group of young men exited the establishment. While they exited, one of the young men, 26-year-old Justin Usher, began behaving disorderly and demanded that the police officer return his cap. Even though the young man was told that it was his friends that had the cap, he continued to behave disorderly and punched WPC Noralez to the lower left chin.

Upon being detained by officers, video footage was posted on social media showing Usher in handcuffs shouting that what was being done to him was an injustice to the human race and that he was a student of the University of Belize. A cap was the placed on his head and there were attempts by persons who appeared to be his friends attempting to calm him down. He none the less continued to shout at the person recording the video and even began to cry. Meanwhile, the persons doing the taping pointed out to him that it was he who had punched the officer and that he was being disrespectful to the police.

Justin Usher came to prominence at the end of September as he was one of the most vociferous protestors, who attempted to put pressure on the police department following the disappearance of Kelvin Usher who had gone missing during a police operation at a marijuana plantation in Lucky Strike Village. Kelvin would later be found and it was proven that the police had nothing to do with his disappearance.

Justin Usher was also involved in a stabbing incident at the MCC Grounds where one person lost his life. Justin Usher has been arrested and charged for assaulting a police officer.
