It was high drama and a very greasy situation on Lyndhurst Road in Kingston yesterday (March 30, 2009), as Patrick Marshall - a garage operator - stripped to his underwear and thoroughly covered himself in grease in order to prevent his imminent arrest by policemen who were at his business place.
Marshall took off all his clothes except his boxers, then proceeded to grease every part of his body in order to make it as difficult as possible for the police to hold and arrest him. According to Marshall, the police officers came to help a customer reclaim a vehicle from his garage, a vehicle that Marshall was refusing to release because he claims the customer owes him J$114,000 in storage fees and refuses to pay this sum.
Marshall was at least succesful for the day. The policemen were unable to arrest him and because of the intervention of other police officers, the vehicle was not allowed to be removed from his garage.
