Neighbours fight over grass

John DaCosta Lewis was found guilty of wounding Tito Clarke when he appeared in the District “A” Magistrates’ Court yesterday.

Magistrate Douglas Frederick ruled that Lewis must complete 180 hours of community service for the crime, which was committed on October 5, 2011.

According to the police prosecutor, Lewis and Clarke who are neighbours got into an altercation over the placing of grass that had been cut.

The accused allegedly got angry when the virtual complainant refused to move the grass from a particular spot.

A struggle ensued which resulted in Lewis stabbing Clarke in the left side of his chest.

Clarke sought medical attention and was treated and discharged.

Lewis, a landscaper, of #28 Golden Acre, St Stephen’s Hill, St Michael, returns to court on August 5, 2016.

    As the old people would say, “My lawd!” I believe the seriousness of the wounding would have prevented Magistrate Frederick from breaking out in hysterical laughter. I think that both of these men should get six hot lashes across their blessed ASSurances with a donkey belly band that was soaked overnight. I believe they, and all the youngsters that walking around doing the petty nonsense and clogging up the courts, after one dose of the soaked donkey belly band, wouldn’t want a second.
