CAY HILL–An off-duty police officer Q.N.A. was arrested at St. Maarten Medical Center (SMMC) on Saturday morning for damaging one of the hospital’s door windows.
Sources say the officer was at the hospital seeking medical attention. Seemingly dissatisfied with the service, he got angry and tried to break through the door leading to the children’s ward. His efforts did not grant him entry, but did manage to crack the door’s glass window.
After consulting with the Prosecutor’s Office, the St. Maarten Police Force KPSM placed the officer under arrest for destruction of property. Police Chief Carl John has requested that the Department of Internal Affairs launch an investigation into the matter.
