Three women spend night in jail after fight
Three women spent Sunday in jail, after a fight at the Ice Queen restaurant in Paget.
Kryshea Furbert, 22, and Kristos Trott, 28, each pleaded guilty to affray in Magistrates’ Court, while 33-year-old Iesha Simmons admitted obstructing a police officer.
The three were arrested after a police patrol spotted patrons running from the restaurant entrance at about 4am on August 7.
Furbert and Trott were seen grabbing and punching one another outside the Ice Queen, and had to be pulled apart.
As police were arresting them, Simmons approached in an agitated state and tried to reach around an officer, who pushed her away.
When Simmons returned, shouting, the police officer produced Captor spray, and sprayed her after she continued to approach.
Asked by Senior Magistrate Archibald Warner why they had been fighting, Furbert said she had been getting food when Trott splashed water on one of her friends.
She said she had been hit in the face after the two had started fighting. Trott said she had been out with friends, trying to clear her head, after her cousin had been found dead over the weekend.
She said she had been talking with a man in the queue at Ice Queen, and playfully splashed him with water, some of which had hit another patron.
She said Furbert then grabbed her arm. After arguing, the two started to fight outside.
Simmons, who had been in the queue with Trott, tried to intervene when police arrested them.
“These public order offences are becoming all too prevalent,” Mr Warner told them. “Young ladies don’t behave this way.”
Mr Warner gave each of them a 12-month conditional discharge, telling them: “I hope that night in the police cells taught you all a lesson.”
