The three men involved in the fight along Rockley Main Road, last Saturday, were all remanded to HMP Dodds.

Three Christ Church men, all in their 30s, were remanded to HMP Dodds when they appeared in court today charged in connection with a fight along Rockley Main Road.

They are Matthew Anthony Robinson, 39, of Parish Land; Omar DaCosta Holder, 37, of Lot 6C Pleasant Hall and Mario Jabarry Birkett, 30, of Balls Land.

Robinson was charged with breach of curfew, causing a disturbance and throwing stones on a highway.

Holder was charged with possession of an offensive weapon, possession of cannabis, fear of violence, causing a disturbance and throwing stones on a highway and Birkett was charged with causing a disturbance and throwing stones on a highway.

The trio was on board a route taxi travelling towards Bridgetown when they became involved in an argument which escalated into an altercation.
