Caused noisy quarrel and slightly injured two policemen over egg and bacon Maltese ‘ħobża’

A 50-year old Maltese woman, which caused a noisy quarrel at a Cospicua shop and slightly injured two policemen, was handed a nine-month suspended prison sentence and fined.

The case occurred in December 2014 when policemen  stationed at the Cospicua station heard disturbance coming from a distance. When they went to investigate, officers found a woman shouting with the Bake and Take shop owner.

When the officers requested the woman to accompany them to the station, she refused and sat down on the ground while kicking the two constables. She also slightly injured the woman constable. The officers told the court that she was eventually handcuffed and taken to the station.

The Court heard that the argument started on an egg and bacon Maltese ħobża (bread) which the woman ordered at the shop where her daughter’s boyfriend worked. While the latter was serving her, the shop’s owner told him “first the work and then your fiancee’s mother”. She felt offended by these words.

The woman admitted that she had drunk before the argument, was passing through separation and had psychological problems and spent time at Mount Carmel hospital.

Magistrate Neville Camilleri found her guilty of charges, sentenced her to nine months in prison suspended for two years and fined her €6,000.
