Bjorn Burke, Staff Reporter

No evidence was offered against a man and his babymother in a case and cross case when they appeared before the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court yesterday, after they were involved in a lovers' spat which turned physical.

Charged with assault occasioning bodily harm are Latoya Grant and Gavin Williams.

The court heard that the pair got into a heated dispute regarding Grant's unwillingness to allow Williams to see his child.

"We can't agree on anything," Grant started.

"I think you agree on a lot," Senior Resident Magistrate Judith Pusey interjected jokingly.

It is alleged that sometime during the dispute, things turned physical when Williams grabbed the hand of his babymother, bending her fingers causing pains.

"Because mi nuh see the baby for bout three weeks, she nuh want me to see the baby," Williams explained.

Williams further added that he was the sole breadwinner, stating that he was unable to meet several of her requests which lead to further conflict between them.

Grant, who acknowledged her babyfather's account of the incident, stated that they have had long-standing disputes about a number of issues, including moving from their current dwelling as she was uncomfortable there.

Taking both accounts into consideration, RM Pusey cautioned Grant stating: "If you want to live like Donald Trump, then date Donald Trump!"

Subsequently, the pair was admonished and discharged as no evidence was offered against them.
