Dispute lands driver, homeowner on wounding, property damage charges

A conflict between a motorist and a homeowner landed them both in a city court on Thursday, on separate charges of inflicting grievous bodily harm and causing damage to property.

Andrew Cush was brought before Principal Magistrate Judy Latchman, who read a charge which stated that on January 23rd, 2018, at Charlotte Street, he unlawfully and maliciously inflicted grievous bodily harm upon Shabeki Chase.

The accused denied the charge and he was later granted $200,000 bail.

The matter was then adjourned until April 6th.

Meanwhile, Chase was accused of unlawfully and maliciously damaging the front windscreen of Cush’s car, resulting in damage estimated at $250,000.

According to the prosecution, on the day in question, Cush parked his vehicle opposite Chase’s house. There was a misunderstanding and Chase allegedly took a brick and broke Cush’s windscreen.

She was granted $50,000 bail after she too pleaded guilty.

Cush is also expected to make her next court appearance on April 6th.
