On Saturday, police issued a statement that McKeeva Bush was reported to assault a woman at a local bar.
House Speaker McKeeva Bush responded to the allegations, saying at the time of the incident he was disoriented, does not remember the incident and believes he must have felt that he was in danger.
“I wish to extend my profound and sincere apologies to the management and staff of Coral Beach, the public, my colleagues, my constituents and in particular (the manager) for the incident which occurred on Friday 21 February, 2020,” Bush said.
“I had no intention of doing so. I did not know where I was or what had happened or who was assisting me to get back to my feet. I was confused and disorientated, a similar feeling to that which I experienced when coming out of anaesthetic from my previous operations. I can only assume that I must have believed that I was in danger,” Bush said in the statement.
