Jerome Taylor, the West Indies fast bowler, was freed after arrest for assault at a bar in Kingston, AFP has reported. Taylor, who has represented West Indies in 29 Tests and 62 ODIs, was charged with using indecent language, assaulting a police officer, improper conduct and resisting arrest by local police in his parish, St Elizabeth.
According to police sergeant Clifford Evans, Taylor, who returned from the tour of Australia due to a back injury, was a patron at a bar when the police ordered it to close as required at 11pm. Taylor reportedly became abusive and matters escalated when the police tried to handcuff him.
Taylor was later released and is scheduled to appear in court on January 12.
