Dean Jonas accused of threatening bullets

11

Election campaign efforts got heated on December 30 when ABLP candidates clashed with members and supporters of opposing parties.

In a viral video shared late Friday night, at a residence in Pares where both politicians happened to be campaigning, Prime Minister Gaston Browne was heard threatening to punch his former running mate, now independent candidate, Asot Michael, in the face should his personal space be further invaded.

Furthermore, earlier Friday evening, a UPP supporter, Marlon Davis, whilst driving an announcement vehicle for the UPP candidate for St George was allegedly caught in traffic behind a black truck supposedly driven by ABLP candidate Dean Jonas that was also playing political announcements in the New Winthorpes area.

After being stuck behind the truck for approximately 10 minutes, Davis claims that Jonas turned his vehicle to cut off traffic at the junction near the New Winthorpes playing field before drawing his gun and allegedly threatening to shoot, having apparently been upset by the material the UPP campaign vehicle was playing at the time.

A bystander from another vehicle purportedly stepped out to prevent any further altercations by addressing Jonas’ actions and both parties departed from the scene.

We have confirmed that a formal report has been made at the Coolidge Police Station but further details are pending investigation at this time.

Police spokesperson Inspector Frankie Thomas was also contacted and said that case investigators would have to provide him with an update before any official comment could be given.

We have also approached Jonas for comments. They have not yet been forthcoming.

We will follow up with more details as they become available.

  1. I didn’t thinķ so at first, but without a shadow of a doubt Antigua & Barbuda have been in an abusive relationship with the ABLP government for some time now, however, many of us didn’t realise it. Sad But true.

    Just like any turbulent relationship, there comes a time when you have to call it a day, otherwise serious repercussions will occur.

    Antiguans are now in this position with Gaston ‘Kung-fu’ Browne and the ABLP party.

    Our relationship with the ABLP can either end AMICABLY on the 18th of January 2023 or SPIRAL totally out of control with Gaston still at the helm.

    I am praying for the former, however, our Prime Minister is SCARILY showing the signs of the later.

    The world’s view of Gaston Browne’s behaviour is embarrassing to me, as a patriotic and proud Antiguan.

    FELLOW ANTIGUANS, WHEN IS ENOUGH, ENOUGH?

  2. This degenerate (who opened his mouth and said a 14 year old child can consent to sex) wreaks of desperation. We will see whether police follow the law, or follow instructions.

  3. Where are the videos? Come on people…. dem smart phones should be out yall dropping points… we all know nothing will come out of this! If its true we need Dean gone ASAP!! We in Antigua are not use to this…. we are not politically motivated to literally harm someone else

  4. 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣
    AH SINCE WHEN DEAN TUN BADMAN?
    SO, ANOTHER ABLP GUN MAN.

  5. That is a PUNK MOVE! Pulling a gun and threatening to fire shots at somebody is an or itself a TERRORISTIC THREAT. If he, Dean “PUNK” Jonas. Did in fact pulled that weapon without any justification of immediate bodily and threatened another human being. He should be charged with Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon! Popo do your job. No one is above the law of the land. Charge he rass!!! Take away his weapon. He has displayed the temperament to be a responsible carrier of a firearm.

    These Labour guys are acting like cornered RATS. UPP is the Big BAD Cat that is about to devour their behinds. Se La. UPP 8, Labour 8. Independent 1.

    Asot will hold the key to form the next government.

  6. The time has come to get rid of them. Dean Jonas, Gaston Browne, Cutie Benjamin, Samantha Marshall, Lenox Weston and the rest gangsters.

    Antiguans, vote them out.

  7. Hey guys do not invade the space of the ABLP politicians. If they are in someone yard campaigning don’t enter. If they are driving do not drive behind them and play your loud speaker . This could land you a punch in the face or a bullet. I too hate people invading my space. I have 800 Africans invading my space. I am going to punch who let them enter into my space in the face.

  8. If I cannot catch them to punch them on the street, I will do it with my x/vote on Election Day .
