Al­leged spit­ter charged with as­sault

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

An in­ci­dent that al­legedly oc­curred here on De­cem­ber 10, 2014 ini­tially failed to re­ceive any trac­tion but that could change. At the cen­tre of the al­le­ga­tions was a dis­pute be­tween a lo­cal ven­dor at Re­duit Beach and a restau­rant owner op­er­at­ing in the area. The ven­dor al­leges he spat at her.

Last month the restau­ra­teur broke his si­lence via a STAR ad­ver­tise­ment. He gave his own side of the in­ci­dent and de­nied he had as­saulted the ven­dor. On the con­trary, he noted, it was she who had spat at him. On Wed­nes­day he was charged by po­lice with ver­bally and phys­i­cally abus­ing the beach ven­dor.
