Brawl at Dwight Yorke Stadium

The TTPS Tobago Division has launched an investigation into a melée between police officers and civilians.

A video with the altercation, which occurred over the weekend at the Dwight Yorke Stadium, was widely shared on various social media platforms.

The video—of duration 1:13 minutes—shows several policemen subduing a young man, who is seen kicking and cuffing them. One policeman is also seen responding to the attack.

Two civilians were involved in the brawl but others who attempted to get involved were prevented from doing so by officers standing by.
