A 44-year-old man, who slapped a barman twice for allegedly making sexual advances to his wife, will know his fate next Friday.
Alphonsa Claudius Philip Griffith, of Pearl View, Kingsland Terrace, Christ Church, admitted to unlawfully assaulting Greg Hackett on October 19, occasioning him actual bodily harm.
Hackett, who is employed at a Dover, Christ Church establishment, was reportedly sitting on a bench speaking to someone when Griffith walked up and demanded an apology from him for making sexual advances to his wife.
Hackett refused which resulted in Griffith slapping him.
The self employed man persisted with his demands and with the apology still not forthcoming, he slapped Hackett a second time. Police were called in and Griffith was arrested.
“He was up in her face making sexual advances,” the husband insisted.
However, Magistrate Douglas Frederick said today he was not prepared to make a ruling in the matter until he heard Hackett’s side of the story.
Griffith, whose guilty plea was in breach of a yearlong bond imposed on him by another magistrate on a traffic charge, was therefore remanded to prison until October 27 after he was unable to pay the required 1,500 forthwith fine.
