Springer admits to hitting teen on the buttocks with a shovel

A 22-year-old man, who hit a teenager three times on the buttocks with a shovel, has one month to pay $1, 500 in compensation.

If Kwmae’ Youshain Springer, of Block 2D, Farm Road, Deacons Farm, St Michael, fails to pay the amount imposed by Magistrate Douglas Frederick he will have to spend three months at HMP Dodds.

Springer was also placed on a bond and must be on his best behaviour for the next six months if he wants to avoid spending three months in jail.

The sentences were imposed after Springer admitted to hitting Kobie Harewood on January 7.

The 17-year-old was reportedly at the house of a friend fixing his bicycle when Springer, who lives nearby, spotted him and hurled derogative statements at him before asking that he leaves the area.

However, Springer struck the teen when he attempted to do as requested. The youngster left and told his mother what had occurred and the matter was reported to the police.

Springer, who is known to the court, told the magistrate that he and the teen had an ongoing altercation over football “or something so”.

“An he was behind my paling, not in anybody yard. I ain’t hit he round his head, I hit he on his backside,” the accused man explained.

However, the prosecutor, Station Sergeant Neville Reid, told Frederick that the victim had refused to seek medical attention following the incident and as such did not know what injuries he had sustained.

“That’s a red flag that it hasn’t ended,” the magistrate stated before imposing the sentence.

    Kim I think you are right.If the guy isn’t on his property he has no right to assault this person.Even if he was on his property,the procedure would be to ask him to leave.

    I would rather he hit the lad on his backside with a shovel than a bullet or two out of a Glock or AK47, the preferred tools of settling an argument in modern Barbados.
