A 47-year-old man has been placed on two years’ probation for causing harm.
James Storr admitted to stabbing Reno Colebrooke in the neck on July 15 while at the San Andros Airport during his arraignment before Magistrate Samuel McKinney.
Storr’s lawyer, Lennox Coleby, said that Storr produced a knife during an assault by Colebrooke.
Coleby claimed that the incident began when Colebrooke confronted Storr about a complaint his girlfriend had made.
Coleby said Storr was a community leader, who helped many on the island.
McKinney ordered store to compensate Colebrooke $1,500.
If he breaches the probation, he will have to pay a $1,500 fine to avoid spending nine months in prison.
