A drinking bar operator, Doris Yeboah, who bit off a neighbour's ear during a scuffle at Amasaman has been fined GH₡ 1,200 by an Accra Circuit Court.

The court, presided over by Mr Aboagye Tandoh also ordered Doris to sign a bond to be of good behaviour for two years or in default go to jail for six months.
 

This came after the court had found Doris guilty on the charge of causing unlawful harm. Prosecution called three witnesses to make their case.
 

According to prosecution, on March 25, 2012, at about 4:00pm, complainant met Doris at a spot and she pulled her braided hair and that resulted in a fight.

In the process, Doris bit the left ear of the complainant. Complainant also bit the hand of Doris. They both reported the matter to the Police and they were issued with medical forms.

The court urged the complainant, Vicky Hamolda to seek the services of a counsel to pursue the issue of compensation.

However, the complainant began ranting in court saying she has no money to secure a lawyer for compensation.
She, however, in default of the fine, will go to jail for one year.
