The man accused of throwing a bag over the perimeter wall of the US Embassy triggering a security scare last month is to return to the Corporate Area Magistrate's Court today. 

American Elliot Caine is charged with public nuisance, resisting arrest and assault. 

At his last appearance on April seven, senior magistrate Judith Pusey ordered that he undergoes a psychiatric evaluation.

Caine caused a security scare at the US Embassy, almost a week before the President Barack Obama was schedule to arrive in Jamaica. 

He was accosted by Embassy security officers and later turned over to the police.

The police later said the bag was examined and no threats were uncovered.
