Woman gets one-week jail for hitting singer with decanter
A woman who hit a singer on the temple with a decanter was given one week's jail on Thursday.
Crystal Liew Shu Hui, 23, was ordered to pay $5,000 to the victim, Ms Rod In Yuvana, 33, a Thai national, as compensation. She admitted to using a decanter to hit the victim around the left temple between midnight and 4.11am at Neverland Thai Disco at Orchard Plaza, Orchard Road, on Dec 17, 2011.
A district court heard that Liew and her five friends were drinking and chatting at the disco where Ms Yuvana was performing.
About two hours later, Ms Yuvana came and sat next to Liew's friend, Amanda, and tried to speak to her, but Amanda was busy talking and did not pay any attention to the victim.
