"I got assaulted this morning and I was charged with assault," Bridgez told THE JAMAICAN STAR.
About 5 a.m. on Tuesday morning after leaving Uptown Mondays, Bridgez, real name Brigette Roache, said that she was dropping home a friend when she was stopped by the policeman. Upon stopping, she said she was ordered to come out of the car and she complied.
Bridgez said that after asking him the reason for stopping her, the policeman claimed a Tiida (Nissan), similar to the one she was driving, was stolen in the area earlier.
"He asked if anybody else is in the car and he started pointing the gun at the car. They came out and he searched all of us," she said. was drunk
"After he searched the car, I went in the car to get something and he pushed me and then he pushed me again. I lost it after that and I started cursing. They started saying I was drunk so I told them to give me a breathalyser test because I wasn't drunk," Bridgez said.
An inspector at the Constant Spring Police Station confirmed the incident and said Bridgez was charged with the use of calumnious language and assault. Bridgez is also scheduled to make an appearance at the Corporate Area Magistrate Court on January 15.
"I understand the charge for indecent language but I didnâ€™t assault anybody. There were persons seeing it and telling me to video it. He (policeman) was videoing after he assaulted me," Bridgez added.
Based on the ill-treatment Bridgez says she received, she insists that she will be reporting the policeman for his actions.
"They treated me and my friends like criminals. I have to report this man because he put his hands on me twice and he put his hands on my breasts. I have witnesses, I didnâ€™t do anything,â€ Bridgez said, noting that she was about to make a report at Independent Commission of Investigations (INDECOM).
