Man used coconut as weapon, fined $10,000

KINGSTON, Jamaica — A man was fined $10,000 in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate’s Court after pleading guilty to assaulting another with a coconut.

Keno Bailey pleaded guilty to a charge of wounding with intent.

After pleading guilty, Bailey attempted to justify his action telling the court that he flung the coconut to ward off an attack by the complainant on his (Bailey’s) cousin.

He is to serve six months behind bars if the fine isn’t paid.
