Juwan Richardson, 22, of Greenland, was arrested on Sunday and charged with indecent language, resisting arrest and assault on police, according to a Monday press release from the Police Information Office.

The arrest came after police broke up a gathering on the Queen Elizabeth II Bridge between Tortola and Beef Island that exceeded the social distancing protocols, the press release stated.

“The disorderly conduct of [Mr. Richardson] resulted in his arrest and charges,” the press release alleged.

Mr. Richardson was granted bail of $5,000 to appear before Magistrates’ Court on June 26, police added.
