Kamis Abdul Rahim, 64-years-old, was sentenced on 6 December to 12 months imprisonment with an additional enhanced sentence of 253 days jail for breaching his remission order at the time of his offences.
He was charged with 8 charges, including using criminal force on an APO, using vulgarities on public servants, hurting a nurse and other offences.
Four charges were considered during his sentencing.
He had kicked a nurse while drunk while he was serving a remission order for drug-related offences and acting rashly, as well as grabbed the revolver of an auxiliary police officer in another incident, among others.
On 3 April, Kamis drank some rice wine before going to Ng Teng Fong Gneeral Hospital where his mother was hospitalised and shouted vulgarities at auxiliary police officers, saying: “You think you have gun, I scared you?”
He then reached out for the officer’s utility belt where the gun was located, managing to grab onto the gun’s grip after the officer had moved away before being pulled away by security officers and handcuffed.
The police were then called in and he was then arrested.
On 22 March, Kamis was intoxicated and being tended to by a doctor and nurse at NUH and he was being violent, to which the doctor prepared to sedate him.
He then kicked the nurse on her face near her eye and nose bridge, before apologising to her.
The nurse suffered an abrasion under her right eyebrow and a cut over her nose.
His sentenced was backdated to 5 April when he was put in remand.
