Darrell Usher31-year-old Police Corporal Darrell Usher appeared in the Belize City Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday, May 8th, to answer to a charge of wounding upon a 29-year-old female teacher. The incident occurred two weeks ago, April 25th, at a repast in Hattieville Village. According to the woman, she was sitting at a repast for the late Mark McKoy, when Usher suddenly approached her and punched her in the face.

According to the teacher, she was punched to the left temple, jaw area and kicked in the stomach.  She said Usher acted out because he thought it was her that said something bad about him earlier that day. She said that he had been sending her threats via text prior to the attack. She had to seek medical attention at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital where a doctor classified her injuries as wounding.  

In court, Usher pleaded not guilty to the charge and Chief Magistrate Anne Marie Smith granted bail in the sum of $1,000 plus one surety of the same amount. Usher is stationed at the Belmopan Police Station but due to the charge he is now on interdiction and receiving half his pay. The conditions of Usher’s bail are that he must report to the Belmopan Police Station every Monday between the hours of 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. and he must stay away from the victim.  Usher is due back in court on July 8th. Darrell Usher is the son of Gilroy Usher, the PUP Standard Bearer for Port Loyola. Corporal Usher has been the subject of numerous rumours throughout the city in recent years but has not been charged with any crime.
