Broomes and Austin both pleaded not guilty to the charges and were released on self bail. The case is adjourned until August 31, 2020.

The second charge also alleged that the duo unlawfully retrained Younge.

The last joint charge alleged that Broomes and Austin caused public terror.

Broomes was separately charged for assaulting Younge so as to cause him actual bodily harm.

Meanwhile, Austin was charged for discharging a firearm within 100 yards of public space.

On August 3, the former Government minister took to a Facebook Livestream while she was in pursuit of two men who had ripped off ‘No fishing’ signs from her private property.

Broomes and her driver trailed the men in their motorcar  all the way from her Meadowbrook Home to the Sophia area where she confronted them

In the video, Broomes alleged that the men wanted to show who was in power and running the country. She also claimed that the men even threatened her with a gun.

During the confrontation, Broomes identified one of the men as being Younge, who is also a former schoolmate of hers.

During the live video, Younge was slapped while residents of the Sophia area also came out and accosted the men.

    Just lucky the men were not hurt worse….lawd know the lady try. Interesting to note since then it has been reported that the Government was renting the house for her from her…….go figure that one out. If this is not the case she needs to step up and clarify……

    Terrible overreaction to the removal of some signs.

    Simona Broomes needs to always be required to show a recent course completion Certificate of Anger Management wherever she goes. Something is really wrong with her. I suggest she start eating a vegan diet and detoxify some of those toxins in her. This goes for Dexter Austin too.

    They should have been charged for kidnapping instead of unlawfully restrained. Wicked people these.
