    Charges dropped: Cecoy Robinson playing for PHC Zebras (File photograph)

A national football team captain alleged to have assaulted a police officer at a sports ground earlier this year has had the charge thrown out of court, it was revealed yesterday.

Larry Mussenden, the Director of Public Prosecutions, confirmed that “the Crown offered no evidence in the case” against Cecoy Robinson on October 30.

Mr Mussenden added: “The information was dismissed and the defendant was discharged.”

Mr Robinson, 32, from Hamilton Parish, denied the charge when he appeared at Magistrates’ Court on April 22.

It was alleged that the assault had happened two days earlier as police carried out a liquor-licence check at the Bermuda Athletic Association in Pembroke.

Mr Robinson is the captain of PHC Zebras. Bermuda will play a friendly match today against Major League Soccer side DC United in St Croix, US Virgin Islands, and play Mexico in the Concacaf Nations League in Toluca, Mexico, on Tuesday.
