Two men who pleaded guilty today to causing a public disturbance have been ordered to keep the peace for a year.
Lamur Oneal Holder, 23, of Ceres Road, Fairfield, St Michael, and 22-year-old St George resident Dillon Stevenson Rico Hurdle admitted that today, they caused a disturbance in a public place.
Holder also pleaded guilty to having two grammes of cannabis on the same day.
The facts revealed that police went to Ceres Road where the two men were involved in an altercation at Holder’s residence. Despite the presence of the officers, they continued to quarrel, which escalated to a fight.
They were separated and police carried out a search of both men.
It was at that time that the cannabis was found in Holder’s rear pants pocket. He admitted owning it.
Asked today by Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant whether they wanted to say anything to the court, the men replied: “No, Ma’am.”
The two, who are not known to the law courts, were then placed on the bond. If either breaches it, he will have to pay $1,500 forthwith or spend two months in prison at HMP Dodds.
Holder, meanwhile, has one month in which to pay the court $800 on the drug charge. The alternative is a six-week prison term.
He returns to court on December 28, to show proof of receipt.
