A Bermuda Police Service spokesman subsequently confirmed the constable had been suspended from duty.
Pc Sean Kelly, 39, pleaded not guilty at Magistrates’ Court yesterday to two counts of assault against Rebekah Kelly while in an increased penalty zone.
The incidents are alleged to have happened on October 9 last year near Saltus Grammar School in Pembroke and on December 29 last year in a Warwick playground.
