Angry brother kicks in washing machine

Brotherly love yesterday saved Harold McDonald Payne from feeling the full weight of the law.

The #50 Clarke’s Road, Free Hill, Black Rock resident was reprimanded and discharged by Magistrate Douglas Frederick after his brother, Rudolph Payne, the virtual complainant, dropped the case against him.

According to the facts presented in court, the 50-year-old unemployed man was celebrating his birthday and “had in some drinks” when he got angry with his brother and kicked a washing machine belonging to the complainant, putting a dent in it.

The accused had previously pleaded guilty and was granted $1, 500 bail with one surety.

However, appearing yesterday in the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court No.1, the brother of the accused man said he was no longer pursuing the case because he loved his brother and had forgiven him.
