    A policeman remains at hospital after he was beaten by a co-worker who turned up for duty in a drunken state, early yesterday morning.

    The Trinidad Express reports that around 2am, they got into a verbal argument which escalated into a physical encounter.

    Other officers intervened and separated the men – the injured was taken for treatment while the other, a Corporal, was placed in a jail cell.

    Reports indicate that senior officers at the Maloney Police Station are investigating the incident.
