John Bodden

(CNS): The acting fire chief who was suspended from his job last month after he was arrested and later charged in connection with a hit and run in January made his first appearance in the traffic court Tuesday. Dressed in casual clothes, John Bodden remained silent during the brief appearance when the case was adjourned until 14 September, as the attorney stated they had not received the details of the charges.

According to a police press release last month, Bodden has been charged with careless driving, leaving the scene of an accident, using a vehicle with an expired licence coupon and using a vehicle without a certificate of roadworthiness.

The charges follow a hit and run outside Savannah Primary School on National Heroes Day, when two brothers were both hit by a car as they tried to cross the road. The elder brother, who is 21, was only slightly injured but his younger 14-year-old brother received serious head and leg injuries.
