Unwarranted aggression and scare tactics were cited by the court as evidence that the official had exceeded legal boundaries by abusing his power, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.

The 25-year-old defendant was found guilty on two of the seven charges brought forward by the Public Prosecution. The charges that resulted in conviction included displaying force or threatening violence, as well as resisting public servants.

It is worth noting that the verdict can be challenged by filing an appeal with a higher court.

The accused faced a total of seven charges, which encompassed misdemeanors such as displaying force, threatening violence, and intending to intimidate or exert power.

The additional charges brought against the defendant included resisting public employees, causing damage to property, disturbing public peace, carrying and possessing dangerous tools, and concealing evidence.

Court records also shed light on the convict's history of serious offenses against honor and public morality. This history includes possession of a firearm, discharging firearms, seducing a minor, and possession of narcotics.

The court's decision concluded that the perpetrator's intention was to inflict physical or moral harm upon the complainant, resulting in property damage through the use of force and threats of violence.

In reaching its verdict, the court carefully examined eight pieces of evidence submitted during the proceedings.
