Chief Magistrate Sonya Young held Glasgow in contempt of Court after he sucked his teeth while court was sitting.

He was fined $200.

According to a reliable source, who was present during a sitting of the Traffic Court, the Chief Magistrate was speaking to an accused person, when Glasgow went and stood in the box from which prosecution witnesses usually testify.

The Chief Magistrate told Glasgow that she was not ready for him, at which time Glasgow sucked his teeth and stepped out of the box.

SEARCHLIGHT was also reliably informed that Glasgow answered in the affirmative when the Chief Magistrate asked if he had sucked his teeth.

Up to press time, it was unclear if the fine had been paid.
