At an event near the harbor on Saba, a fight broke out between two men. During the fighting, bystanders interfered. The police tried to disperse the fighters and were forced to use force, and warning shots were also fired. After peace had been restored, the officers managed to arrest the suspects and take them to the police station for arraignment before an assistant public prosecutor.

The Dutch Caribbean Police Force would like to point out to everyone that no form of verbal or physical violence will be tolerated against officers. The officers have every right to report suspects for any form of abuse they experience whether in or out of uniform. Calm cooperation from everyone during inspections and when violations are discovered leads to a peaceful solution, which is desirable for everyone.
