National Cyclist charged with assaulting wife
National cyclist, Alanzo Greaves appeared before Magistrate Fabayo Azore at the Georgetown Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday, January 31, 2018, charged with assaulting his reputed wife, Janelle Cox.
The court heard that the incident occurred on January 28, 2018, at Garnett Street, Kitty. He was also charged with causing $205,200 worth in damages to Cox’s Suzuki vehicle on the same day in question.
Greaves denied both charges while his reputed wife begged the court for the matter to be dropped since she no longer wishes to give evidence. The Magistrate placed Greaves on a bond for good behaviour and the charges were dismissed against him.
The court heard that on the day in question, the couple had an argument when Greaves became annoyed and dealt Cox several cuffs about her face and body.
Reports indicate that the cyclist picked up an object and damaged the woman’s car during which Cox became fearful and called the police.
Last year, Greaves was placed before the Court several times for similar matters against his wife but the charges were later dismissed since the woman refused to give evidence each time.
Greaves has been banned until 2020 from participating in any cycling events by the International Cycling Union (ICU) after testing positive for doping.
