A Pomona Village, Essequibo Coast man apologised to his parents in open court after he was slapped with a charge of ‘threatening behaviour’.
Steve Stoll, 22, appeared before Magistrate Sunil Scarce on Thursday at the Suddie Magistrate’s Court. The Police are contending that on March 28, 2016 at Lot 121 Pomona Village, he used threatening language to his father Patrick Stoll.
Steve Stoll told the court that he was intoxicated and cannot remember if he indeed threatened his father. When asked how much alcohol he had consumed Stoll said he had (some bottles) of Guinness.
He however told Magistrate Scarce that he was sorry for his behaviour.
His mother, who was in court, told the magistrate that it was the first time that her son has behaved in such a manner. She said his father wanted to drop the case and he should apologize to them.
After apologising for his behaviour, the parents related that they had forgiven him for what he did. As such the case was dismissed.
Magistrate Scarce however warned the young Stoll to keep the peace and should he have to return in court for a similar offense he will face jail time.
