Trinidad Express:-A court in Belize has ordered soca artiste Destra Garcia to pay just over US$8,000 after the court found that she personally injured a man, Fernando Oliva, while gyrating on him at a concert in September 2015.
Oliva filed a civil claim against Garcia, claiming she jumped on him and ruptured his bladder as she performed at “The Carnival Overload” concert.
Oliva claimed he was called on stage to dance with Garcia. Following the dance, a video showed him lying on the ground.
The court was told Garcia then said: “If you’s bad boy, I will treat you bad! Treat him bad?”
The crowd is said to have responded in the affirmative.
According to court documents, Garcia jumped on top of him in a move closer to wrestling than soca dancing.
The court says Oliva was rushed to the hospital for emergency medical care right after leaving the stage.
After recovering, he sued Garcia for personal injury and during a court appearance last week, the judge ruled Garcia should pay Oliva.
