‘Gold teeth’ refuses apology from young troublemaker


At a recent sitting at the Georgetown Magistrate’s Court, Inspector Calvin “Gold Teeth” Glasgow refused an apology from a young man who was found guilty of throwing missiles at him, even after Magistrate Rickie Burnett had instructed the boy to do so.{{more}}

Well placed and reliable sources, some of whom were present in court, told SEARCHLIGHT that the boy was slapped with three charges of throwing missiles, indecent language and assault.

The boy was convicted for the crimes. Following conviction, magistrate Burnett spoke to the boy and told him that he has to apologise to Glasgow.

However, Glasgow went into one of witness docks and said he did not want an apology, stating that he was too old for one.

The boy was then reprimanded and discharged.

SEARCHLIGHT was also told that the magistrate refused to speak with Glasgow in chambers following what happened.

Glasgow grabbed headlines in January after he was held in contempt of court for sucking his teeth while court was sitting. He was fined $200.

At that time, the Chief Magistrate Sonya Young was speaking to an accused person, when Glasgow went and stood in the box from which prosecution witnesses usually testify.

The Chief Magistrate told Glasgow that she was not ready for him, at which time Glasgow sucked his teeth and proceeded out of the box.

SEARCHLIGHT was also reliably informed that Glasgow answered in the affirmative when the Chief Magistrate asked if he had sucked his teeth.

Following that incident, Director of Public Prosecutions Colin Williams dropped Glasgow from his duties as a prosecutor, in February.

The DPP, who did not go into details about the reason behind the decision, stated that Glasgow will not prosecute nor represent the state or the Commissioner of Police in any matter.

Williams also told SEARCHLIGHT that he has the discretion and that he is entitled under the constitution to authorize anyone to prosecute.
