Insulting language denied
A Cambridge woman charged with calling her neighbour a f ****** n ***** says it’s a simple misunderstanding of her dog’s name, Nica. Katarina Noone,
72, says she was annoyed at her dog, a
12-year-old black labrador, after it had pooed near her back door last week. After neighbour Susie Belling complained, Noone was arrested and charged with using insulting or offensive language within hearing of a public place. She denied the charge when she appeared in the Hamilton District Court on Wednesday and is on bail with conditions not to raise her voice or use offensive language until a hearing in November.
