Argument over dead cat turns ugly

A row over a dead cat has resulted in a 20-year-old man being out of pocket for damaging a vehicle.

Appearing before Magistrate Douglas Frederick in the No.1 District ‘A’ Criminal Court Friday morning, Rakiel O’Brien Small of Chadderton Road, Tweedside Road, St Michael pleaded guilty to damaging a van belonging to Shaundel Clarke on July 27, 2017.

Small explained that tempers flared between him and his neighbour after the carcass of a cat was disposed of in close proximity to Clarke’s home.

The neighbours began tossing the animal, which was wrapped in a plastic bag, back and forth on each other’s property.

However, on one toss, the rotting animal landed in close proximity to Small’s nine-month-old son, to which he responded by throwing a rock that struck the complainant’s van.

“Why you all throwing about a dead cat? That sounds so foolish. You should not be in this foolishness,” Frederick said. “I would need to hear from the complainant to see what the damages are, so save up some money,” he added.

Small was released on $1,500 bail with one surety and was ordered to return to court on August 18, 2017.

    Isn’t it a man and a woman? Bare foolishness. I would give them both community service at the RSPCA.
