Vigilante Justice In Alleged Microwave Assault

From provincial court: a strange tale of birthday wishes, violence, and assault with a microwave.

A 30-year-old Saint John woman pleaded guilty in court this afternoon to common assault. Crystal McGarity was charged with kicking and punching the brother of her ex-boyfriend in the parking lot of a local bottle exchange.

McGarity admitted she pulled the man out of a car and assaulted him because she heard he threw a microwave at his mother and failed to wish her a happy birthday.

McGarity was ordered to pay a $100 fine and stay out of trouble.
