Two Mahogany Heights men who were engaged in a fight in their village were arraigned on Monday February 22 on separate charges of aggravated assault with a dangerous instrument.

The first to be arraigned was Ervin Fitzgibbon who was charged with one count of aggravated assault upon Jerson Grinage for allegedly assaulting him with a bottle opener.

The second person to be arraigned was Jerson Grinage, who was charged with the same offense of aggravated assault upon Ervin Fitzgibbon, allegedly with a dangerous instrument, being a broken pint bottle.

In court, both men pleaded not guilty to the charge. They told Magistrate, Carlon Mendoza that neither of them wanted any court action so they don’t understand why the police charged them. They nonetheless pleaded not guilty were and were offered bail in the sum of $800 each plus one surety of the same. They were granted bail and are due back in court on April 22, 2015.

Court records show that Grinage owes the court $55.00 for an old conviction for disorderly conduct.

Grinage and Fitzgibbon are distant cousins.
