Bjorn Burke, Staff Reporter

A man accused of throwing liquor in another man's face and later biting him on his ear, causing injuries, was charged with unlawful wounding, but walked free after he appeared in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court on Tuesday.

The court heard that on the day in question, the accused, Garnett Tate, of a Kingston address and the complainant reportedly got into a scuffle, resulting in Tate throwing liquor into the complainant's face, and subsequently biting him on his left ear, causing it to bleed.

"Mi and him inna argument, ignorancy Miss," Tate said, attempting to explain the situation to Senior Resident Magistrate Judith Pusey.

"What you want me to do with him? Throw him weh?" RM Pusey asked the complainant.

The complainant, seemingly willing to reconcile, asked the presiding judge to drop the charges.

Subsequently, the sitting Magistrate ruled that no evidence be offered against Tate.
