A 32-year-old man has been found guilty of assaulting a traffic warden.
As a result, Jamal Anwar Randy Griffith of Warners Gardens, Christ Church was given two weeks to pay $150 in cost.
During the short trial, a female traffic warden testified that she recently saw a car parked illegally on George Street, The City. She went over to the vehicle and gave the driver of the car, Griffith’s wife, a ticket up. The wife was apparently waiting to pick up her husband.
The complainant testified that sometime after, Griffith approached her in an aggressive manner and confronted her about giving his wife a ticket. He then tore the ticket and threw it at her, before returning to the car and driving off.
When he testified today before Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant in the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court, he insisted that he threw the torn ticket on the ground in front of the warden.
Griffith was represented by attorney-at-law Anthony Francis Worrell.
