Shirley Lambey-Arnold, 35, “wanted to kiss the magistrate”

Lambey-Arnold didn’t get jail time for a wounding charge; she was so overjoyed that she attempted to approach the magistrate to kiss him

Today, Shirley Lambey-Arnold, 35, a domestic of #88 Jane Usher Boulevard, pleaded guilty to a wounding charge upon Fay Pollard.

According to police, around 9:30 last night, Pollard was passing in front of Brads Shop, located at #95 Cemetery Road, when she observed an ongoing altercation between a man and a woman.

Pollard told police that the woman picked up a stone and threw it at the man, but the stone missed the man and caught her on her left elbow. She then went to the hospital where a doctor examined her and classified her injury as a wound.

According to Lambey-Arnold in court today, she was passing Brads Shop when she saw a man with whom she had had a difficult relationship. Lambey-Arnold said that as she was passing the man, against whom she has already taken out two restraining orders, he threw a bottle at her, which almost cut her on her left foot.

That was when she picked up a stone and threw it in his direction, but instead of hitting him, the stone caught the woman by accident, she said.

Magistrate Leslie Hamilton, after hearing her plea for mercy, then imposed a fine of $600 on her, which is to be paid by September 30, 2013, or she would have to go to prison for 6 months.

Lambey-Arnold was so overjoyed that she was not given a prison sentence that she approached the magistrate, which is not allowed. When she was restrained by WPC Linda Chun, she said “But I want to kiss the magistrate”.

Lambey-Arnold was then led out of courtroom and allowed to leave.
