Five deny charges over Docksider incident
A group of men have denied involvement in a brawl that caused the temporary shutdown of a Hamilton bar.
Zachary Fox, 20, Paul Smith Jr, 21, Ayinde Eve, 25, Sanchea Douglas, 24, and Jahni Holder, 24, all from Pembroke, pleaded not guilty yesterday in Magistrates’ Court to being involved in the fight in The Docksider Pub & Restaurant on Front Street.
Senior magistrate Juan Wolffe released all five on $1,500 bail and ordered that they stay out of the bar, keep to a curfew and report to Hamilton Police Station twice a week. The fight happened about 3am on January 19. The court heard there were no reported injuries, but police ordered Docksider to close for 24 hours.
Mr Douglas and another man, Jah’Rico Smith-Gardiner, 20, from Sandys, also denied being involved in a separate fight on Court Street on the afternoon of January 21.
Mr Smith-Gardiner was released on $1,500 bail and Mr Douglas was released on $2,000 bail. Both men were also ordered to avoid the area of Court Street north of the junction with Victoria Street.
Mr Wolffe adjourned both cases until March 11.
