I had on a cut out shirt and fitted pants and I felt when some water hit me.   So I looked back and I got up off the stoop and I said to the guy, ‘Why did you hit me with the water,” and he said ‘Because you a batty man,’” Mr. Brown claimed.“Now I don’t think he knew that I am originally from Jamaica, so before anything could happen his girlfriend came up in my face and slapped me and then four people just jumped me,” he claimed.    “Two girls and two guys.   Then two Bahamian men jumped in and started helping me.   There was no conversation, they just started fighting me.   I am not a fighter, I came to the Bahamas to have fun, party and go back home.    I don’t know these people from Adam and they do not know me and they were hitting me and beating me in my head with a rock.    He just said ‘you are a batty man’ and they all jumped me.    After the incident the other two guys that helped me held one of the guys until the police came.”Mr. Brown said he went to the police station and was taken to Princess Margaret Hospital a short time later but because of the long wait he went to Doctors Hospital where he was treated and discharged.#magneticmedianews#gaymanbeatenatcarnival Related Items:#magneticmedianews, #magneticmedianews #gaymanbeatenatcarnivallast_img
