By now, if you have not seen the video of Trinidad’s most controversial television host, Ian Alleyne being carried away by local police, then you have really missed out.
Don’t worry we have the video below for you to view.
I watched live online last night and was in total shock at the melee that was occurring. I saw tussling, pulling, pushing and even cuffs flying in de air! JEEZANAGES!
Before we get to watching…why exactly was there all the ruckus you ask? Well it is alleged that Ian Alleyne was arrested from the drama stemming from airing the identity of an underage rape victim and the act last year, on his hit public affairs show, Crime Watch.
But rumor is running a mock and conspiracy theorists believe that Ian Alleyne was about to catch a real “BIG FISH” and T&T’s constabulary force was not pleased.
I mean how can you be pleased as a police force when you have a television host solving crimes on TV and throwing heavy shade on the people paid by the people of the country to do this job?!?!?!
Mind you…I salute all members of the TTPS that are dedicated, hardworking, honest public servants. However…there are a lot of corrupt polices officers – all over the world!
Anyhoo…Director bring up de video lehwe watch de bacchanal in HD…
Move over Benjai, Ian Alleyne is de true people’s champ!
Here’s what the Trinidad Express printed today:
Popular TV6 “Crime Watch” host Ian Alleyne was tonight arrested by police on the compound of Caribbean Communications Network Ltd (CCN), Independence Square, Port of Spain.
He had just completed the airing of his programme when he was informed that police were on the premises with instructions to arrest him.
Alleyne’s attorney Om Lalla said they received notification that the police had an interest in Ian, but later found out it was their intention to arrest his client.
“In spite of our request that we would meet them at the police station they have refused and the instructions are that he’s to be arrested. We will cooperate but again, it does seem to be an abuse of process”, Lalla said.
He added that if the arrest had anything to do with the airing of a tape showing the rape of a 13-year-old girl on Alleyne’s programme several months ago, they expected the matter to be handled differently as both CCN lawyers and Alleyne have indicated their willingness to cooperate and are still prepared to do so.
Alleyne was handcuffed by members of the Port of Spain Criminal Investigation Department (CID) in the CCN car park and eventually taken away.
A large number of Alleyne’s supporters gathered outside the Charlotte Street entrance to the compound voicing their disapproval.
And what did Ian have to say about all of this….
