St James, Jamaica (McKoy’s News) –  Man Tells Judge Monkey Was on His BackA man, who appeared in court Wednesday for stealing a man’s car battery and damaging his car window, told the judge that his action was a result of a monkey being on his back.

Richard Myrie appeared before the St. James Parish Court where he pleaded guilty to simple larceny and malicious destruction of property.

It is alleged that Myrie broke the complainant’s rear pivot window on his 2001 Toyota Caldina motor car before proceeding to remove the complainant’s car battery.

“Why did you damage the man’s car and steal his battery Mr. Myrie?” asked Parish Judge Sandria Wong-Small.

“A monkey is on my back ma’am…Sometimes the monkey tells me to do things ” replied Myrie.

Having recognized Myrie who was previously before the court for an offence, the judge said, ”You just come back and you are back.”

“What kind of monkey is on your back sir?” the judge then asked but Myrie kept smiling.

At that point, the clerk-of-court told the court that Myrie was also charged for resisting arrest and explained that he pulled away from the officer when they were in the process of placing the handcuffs on him.

“Mi nuh resist no address,” (meaning arrest) Myrie blurted out.

“So that has to go to trial,” the Judge told the accused man.

“No ma’am, I don’t want to go through all dat long process. I am getting abused in the cells,” Myrie lamented.

The judge then ordered a social enquiry report and deferred sentencing until August 25.

Myrie remain behind bars until that date.
