…during parking lot fracasAn East Bank Demerara (EBD) electrician on Wednesday received a fine after he admitted to damaging the car window of a man who he is accusing of attempting to run him down with his car.Kevin Hamilton, 34, of 422 “A” Republic Park, EBD, pleaded guilty with explanation to the charge of damage to property read to him by Magistrate Fabayo Azore.That charge stated that on October 2, 2017, at Carmichael Street, Georgetown, he unlawfully damaged one car window valued $150,000.The defendant explained to the court that on the day in question, he was attempting to drive into the parking lot of his place of employment, but was prevented from doing so by a man standing guard at the lot.Hamilton said he was told that he could not park there, but knowing that random persons would usually park in the lot, he explained to the new guard that he worked at the company.He added that he was still prevented from entering the lot and as such, a tug of war ensued between himself and the guard.He noted that in anger he left in order to avoid a further confrontation with the guard, but later returned and exited his vehicle as someone else was attempting to enter the said parking lot.Hamilton revealed that he was in the way of that person and as such, the man drove his vehicle at a fast pace and in the process struck his foot, causing him to receive injuries.Hamilton relayed that in anger, he hit the man’s car window causing it to break.The defendant further explained that he agreed to pay to have the damage fixed, but could only afford $50,000 as opposed to the $165,000 being requested by the Virtual Complainant (VC).As such, the matter was reported to the Police and the defendant was arrested and charged.Magistrate Azore fined Hamilton $75,000, with a default sentence of eight months imprisonment if he fails to pay the fine

If form holds, Garon will get games against Colorado and Calgary (on Sunday) while LaBarbera will get his chance against Dallas on Thursday. Luc Robitaille, who missed Sunday’s game with a sore groin, did not skate Monday and is questionable, at best, for Wednesday’s game. Murray said Robitaille would not make the trip unless it was certain he could play one of the games. “He’s a quick healer, so we’ll see if he can skate (today),” Murray said. The news was better for Jeff Cowan (groin), who didn’t skate Monday but remains on track to return for Sunday’s game, barring any setbacks this week. “He feels considerably better,” Murray said of Cowan, who has missed the last four games. There remains no firm timetable on Valeri Bure (back), who has been out since Sept. 29. Michael Cammalleri, who was a healthy scratch for two of the Kings’ first three games, has returned strong, with one goal and three assists in his last four games. Cammalleri no longer is in danger of being pulled from the lineup, but scoring isn’t just what the Kings are looking for from Cammalleri, who had 46 goals in 79 games while playing in the American Hockey League during the lockout last season. Murray’s main issue with Cammalleri is with the player being strong on the puck and relying more on aggressiveness than finesse to get the job done. It seems that the message might be getting through. “We’ve told Mike how he has to play,” Murray said of the 5-foot-9 Cammalleri. “I look at the good small players in this league, and they all have a physical edge to them. “Doug Gilmour was a small man but he played big. If you’re going to be a small player in this league, you can’t play small, and Mike has played big in the last four games.” Rich Hammond can be reached at (818) 713-3607. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Garon’s starts have come against Dallas, Minnesota and Detroit, three teams that entered Monday with a combined record of 12-5-1 this season, while LaBarbera has beaten Phoenix, Edmonton and Columbus — all at home — teams with a combined record of 5-12-1, in an odd bit of reverse symmetry. “I would definitely say Mathieu has had the tougher of the schedules so far,” Murray said. “We think that both have played pretty well. Mathieu definitely had some challenges in Dallas (in the season opener).” Given no reason to scrap his alternating-goaltender system, Kings coach Andy Murray will go back to Mathieu Garon on Wednesday, and Murray hopes it’s a while still before he has to make a choice. The raw numbers make it seem as though there’s a disparity. Each goalie has played three games; Garon has a 1-2 record and has allowed nine goals and has a.878 save percentage, while Jason LaBarbera is 1-2 and has allowed four goals to go with a .945 save percentage. But it’s not that simple.
