Pro-opposition activist Colin Graham remained in police custody late Friday evening, having been slapped with five charges after his arrest Friday morning.
His lawyers were hoping that he would be able to secure station bail, which some persons believed would be granted later Friday evening.
Police have charged Graham, whose DJ name is “The Hitman”, with failing to remove motor vehicle PS915 when requested to do so by a police officer in uniform at Arnos Vale on Friday, March 11.
Police say the vehicle was in such a position likely to cause obstruction to the free flow of traffic.
They have also charged that Graham, with being the driver of PS915, did willfully allow the said vehicle to stand on such a road so as to cause unnecessary obstruction to the free flow of traffic.
Graham, a pro-New Democratic Party (NDP) activist, has also been charged that being the driver of PS915, he did fail to comply with the lawful direction given by a police officer in uniform when charged with the regulation of traffic.
He is also charged with causing inconvenience to the public in exercise of common right.
All the offences were allegedly committed on Friday at Arnos Vale.
Graham is also charged with being the driver of motor vehicle PS915, did fail to renew his driver’s licence on his birthdate on March 10th, 2016.
Graham is said to be an organiser of the “We the People” protest against he Unity Labour Party government and its policies which took place in Kingstown on Friday.
Later Friday evening, protesters gathered outside the Central Police Station in Kingstown, where Graham was being held, demanding his release.
