A Ballymena woman caused criminal damage to a woman’s vehicle after she “lost her temper” when her sister was allegedly attacked with a baseball bat.
Muriel Mary Magill (53), of Drumtara, committed the criminal damage offence on June 4, 2017.
At Ballymena Magistrates Court on December 20 a prosecutor said the police were called to the Towers Tavern pub in relation to a “large number” of people involved in incidents.
Defence solicitor John McAtamney said the defendant had been out socialising when her sister was “attacked with a baseball bat and it appears she was knocked unconscious”.
The lawyer said Magill “lost her temper” and struck the vehicle.
Mr McAtamney claimed those involved “are not on each other’s Christmas Card lists”.
Magill was given a one year conditional discharge and ordered to pay £243 for damage caused to the vehicle.
