Ex-police constable granted $75,000 bail for shooting colleague
Former police constable Corinth Corbin was on Friday released on $75,000 bail for allegedly shooting his ex-colleague in the leg with his service weapon during a row over a missing slipper.
Corbin, 22, of Silver Town, Linden appeared before City Magistrate Leron Daly and denied that on January 31, 2021, at Brickdam, Georgetown, he discharged a loaded firearm at Dewani Lampkin with the intent to maim, disfigure, disable, or cause grievous bodily harm.
He pleaded not guilty to the charge.
Magistrate Daly released Corbin on $75,000 bail and adjourned the matter until March 11, 2022.
According to reports, on January 31, 2021, both parties were officers attached to the Brickdam Police Station. It is alleged that the men had a heated argument over a missing pair of slippers which led to the victim assaulting Corbin.
It is alleged that Corbin became annoyed, pulled out his service weapon, and shot Lampkin to his leg. Lampkin was rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital where he was treated.
Corbin was then placed on open arrest at the Technical Service Unit pending investigation. However, Corbin went absent without official leave (AWOL) and was evading the police. He was earlier this week arrested at his Linden home.
