WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 15: Local runner Lamont Marshall was today accused of injuring two people while his driving was impaired.

Mr Marshall, 28, was charged with causing grievous bodily harm to Ian Scotton and Carly Lima on August 13 in Paget while his ability to drive was impaired by drugs or alcohol.

He was also charged with refusing to give a sample of his breath for an alco-analyzer test.

Because the charges are indictable, the defendant was not required to enter pleas as the matter must be heard in the Supreme Court.

Mr Marshall remained silent during the hearing.

The matter was adjourned for two weeks and Mr Marshall was released on $10,000 bail with one surety.

His lawyer Eugene Johnston told the court his client travels overseas for running and requested that he be allowed to continue.

Senior Magistrate Archibald Warner told Mr Marshall he must not leave the jurisdiction without the permission of the court.
