Two reprimanded following ‘tit for tat’

courtTwo people were reprimanded and discharged when they appeared in the District “A” Magistrates’ Court on a charge of disturbing the peace.

Anna Shakira Proverbs, 26, of Round Rock, Lowlands, St Lucy and Neil Erwin Connell, 31, of #21 White Hall Main Road, St Michael were arrested and charged today for causing a disturbance in St Lawrence Gap, Christ Church.

According to the facts presented in court, the car in which Proverbs was travelling ran over the foot of Connell’s friend. Police were later called in as the two began swearing at each other, causing onlookers to converge in the area.

Even when asked by police to desist, they continued arguing for a further 15 minutes “disturbing the equilibrium of the peaceful environment”.

Asked by Magistrate Douglas Frederick to account for his behaviour, Connell said: “Basically I was not pleased with the response I was given following the incident, [but] I want to make an apology to the young lady and the officer involved.”

Proverbs meantime admitted that she was wrong, but said “he [Connell] started cussing me and telling me things about my mother and it just got to my head and I start to respond,” to which Connell replied, “it was a just a ‘titting for tatting’”.

Frederick then ordered the two to behave themselves.

“Go in peace and make sure that it does not happen again. We don’t behave like this in Barbados,” the magistrate said.

    Magistrate Douglas will gave you a laugh, “we don’t behave like that in Barbados ” it was nice for the young man to apologize to both the young lady and the police officer involved, way to go SIR and next time don’t tell anyone about their mother, you have a mother too.
