Brawl over babyfather lands women in court

A collective ''Oohh!" could be heard in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court on Thursday when it was revealed that two women who had had a brawl shared the same babyfather.

The accused woman in the matter, Tanya Davis, is charged with assault occasioning bodily harm.

During court proceedings, as Davis gave her side of the story, the muddled account of the day in question became comprehensible when she revealed that the seemingly trivial dispute between both parties took place as a result of them sharing the same babyfather. It was in this very moment persons in the gallery involuntarily blurted out "Oohh!"

Subsequently, the court heard the complainant admitting to tussling with the accused, throwing blows and biting her on the arm while in a motor vehicle parked in Papine, St Andrew.

In trying to decipher what had taken place, Senior Resident Magistrate Judith Pusey asked: "Whose car?"

"Is we babyfather car," the complainant replied.

The gallery erupted in laughter upon hearing the response.

Addressing the admissions of both women, the sitting magistrate said: "I think the two of unu should spend three days in the same cell. The mothers of Salem must be able to bring their children to Jesus, yu nuh, and unu can't bring fi unu own fighting like that."

Davis was ordered to pay a fine of $5,000 or serve six months.
