Masayo Goto of Japan who appeared in Court on charges of Battery on Police, Resisting Arrest and Disorderly Conduct, pleaded guilty to all charges.
She was convicted and sentenced to 14 days on the charge of Battery on Police and 14 days on the Resisting Arrest Charge. She was also sentenced to 7 days for Disorderly Conduct. Magistrate Emanuel was the presiding Magistrate.
It is alleged that Masayo Goto, who arrived in Antigua on Monday aboard Caribbean Airline Flight #459 from Jamaica, put up a fight with Customs Officers, and refused to be searched, during a routine check.
Narcotics and K-9 Officers, who were also on duty at the airport, had to rush to the assistance of their Law Enforcement colleagues, as a result of the kicking, screaming, rambunctious behaviour of the Japanese national. A search was eventually carried out on her bags and nothing of interest was found.
