Brothers made to apologise to parents in court
Two brothers arrested for obscene language and disorderly behaviour were made to apologise to their parents for the embarrassment they caused yesterday, when they appeared before San Fernando magistrate Alicia Chankar. Chankar, presiding in the Fourth Court, told Darren Jogie and Arnold Jogie, their parents, both of whom were in court, “that’s is a real good Christmas present you give them. Turn around and apologise for putting them through this.”
The men, who were represented by attorney Ravi Mungalsingh, turned to their parents, with heads bent and said, “Sorry.” Chankar, in passing sentence on the brothers, said: “Your parents never get charged and they have to get the embarrassment of their children being arrested and have to come to court and bring deed to get bail.” The brothers were arrested early yesterday, after a dispute outside Rising Star Restaurant and Bar, Hilda Lazarri Terrace, San Fernando.
Jogie was charged with using obscene language, while Arnold was charged with disorderly behaviour.
They both pleaded guilty to the charges which were laid by PC Valentine Eastman. Chankar placed them both on $500 bonds each to keep the peace for one year; in default they would return to court for sentencing. “So next time you want to have your drinks and lime and about to get on dotish, you will think before you behave badly. You will think that you are on a bond,” she said.
Police prosecutor Sgt Russell Ramoutar told the court that around 12.30 am yesterday, Eastman responded to a report of a disturbance at the car park of Rising Star Restaurant and Bar. Ramoutar said Eastman had cause to speak to Jogie, who said, “I ain’t f***ing taking that, ah go call Ian Alleyne.” He was then arrested.
Meanwhile, Arnold was overheard having a dispute with his girlfriend nearby. Eastman spoke to Arnold about his behaviour and he started stamping his feet. He shouted in a loud tone, pointed his hand and said, “The car is mines, how you could let she go in the car.” The brothers were arrested and taken to the Mon Repos Police Station were they were later charged. Mungalsingh said it was the brothers’ first offence.
