Australian man jailed for assaulting Singapore airport police officers

A Singapore court on Thursday sentenced an Australian man to 6-1/2 months in jail for assaulting airport police officers and other offences during a two-week drunken binge. Handcuffed with his feet in chains, Jason Peter Darragh, 44, pled guilty in Singapore State Court to four charges, including one count of using criminal force. The catalogue of misdemeanours began on April 20 at Singapore’s Changi Airport when Darragh assaulted a policeman while on a stopover en route to Cebu, Philippines. The next day, Darragh was charged for causing “annoyance” to a member of the public at the city-state’s party district and for using “abusive words” to a police officer. He was finally charged on May 1 with “causing annoyance” to a woman by “loitering” around a taxi stand with his hand over his crotch.
