Husband admits to tearing up wife’s traffic ticket

A 32-year-old man has been found guilty of assaulting a traffic warden.

As a result, Jamal Anwar Randy Griffith of Warners Gardens, Christ Church was given two weeks to pay $150 in cost.

During the short trial, a female traffic warden testified that she recently saw a car parked illegally on George Street, The City. She went over to the vehicle and gave the driver of the car, Griffith’s wife, a ticket up. The wife was apparently waiting to pick up her husband.

The complainant testified that sometime after, Griffith approached her in an aggressive manner and confronted her about giving his wife a ticket. He then tore the ticket and threw it at her, before returning to the car and driving off.

When he testified today before Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant in the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court, he insisted that he threw the torn ticket on the ground in front of the warden.

Griffith was represented by attorney-at-law Anthony Francis Worrell.

    I for one don’t believe that he threw the ticket at her even though I wasn’t there… I believe that he tear it up in front of her and she got vex and that caused him to get this charge.

    This form of disrespect can not be tolerated. The Magistrate should have thrown the book at him.

    What does it Matter, anyway, the ACT of Tearing up the Ticket, brings a FINE anyway, or are you folks not aware of that? next, he either dropped the torn Ticket on the Ground or he threw it at her, in either scenario there should have been another Ticket issued to him for Littering the Street anyway.

    It both disrespectful to the Traffic Warden just doingnher job, and disrespectful to the Law of the Land, he should have been sent to Dodds for Two Weeks, plus the fine and Costs for the Court and his Keep at Dodds.
    we would never see him Tear up anything after that.

    This Attorney must be a student. The car could never be parked illegally, since the driver of the vehicle at the time , is just picking someone up. to park means you left the vehicle unattended.

    There is no evidence to support assault. since it is his side oppose to her side of hat transpired. The Magistrate accept her side on hat basis?

    The man should appeal .

    Too many people can be heard complaining about these wardens,,,I am not a driner,the Governmeny big blue and golds,park down town and wait for me,but As far as I can see,or understand from what is being said,,,The wife was sitting in the car,and as such does not constitute parking,,,,Secondly, the traffic warden had no right in giving her a ticket,as an the said ticket it states that you must be parked for 15 minutes or more,,,thirdly,,,she could have just ask the lady to move on,as she was sitting in the car;;;;but these police want to be’s never use their initiative,as the must pay themselves by ticketing as many persons as possible……………What I want to ask the this,,, was legislation brought before parliament,which legalized this ticket payment thing?

    He should be ashamed of himself, that’s total disrespect.
