Brett Ewins Injured in Altercation with the Police: Update

Post by tony ingram on Sun Feb 12, 2012 2:41 pm

Former 2000AD artist Brett Ewins, who was hospitalized with serious head injuries a few weeks ago after an altercation with police, and who was unconscious for some time, has now been pronounced fit to stand trial and was remanded into custody at Isleworth Crown Court in North London on Thursday, charged with Grievous Bodily Harm. Brett, who has suffered mental health issues, stabbed a police officer who attempted to restrain him after police were called to investigate reports of a man shouting in the street, inflicting superficial injuries.  An investigation into the actions of the police is also being undertaken.

Will do, but with the prelim hearing over, I doubt we'll hear any more until he goes to trial. Not unless the human rights lawyers kick up a major stink (as they should).

Well, I knew it might take a while for us to hear anything. But aren't you in touch with his brother or something? He could keep you posted with news of developments.

I don't think we'll get any new information until after his court appearance in April. Following the preliminary hearing, I'm guessing everyone's been advised to stay quiet.
