SINGAPORE: A man was on Monday sentenced to three and half months' jail and fined S$1,000 for insulting a hotel cafe staff, and hurting another.
On March 10, 2013, 45-year-old Pannirchelvam Ramachandra went with a friend to a cafe in Quality Hotel located in the North.
During their time there from 7am to 9am, Pannirchelvam asked for coffee.
As the 33-year-old waitress served him and his friend their order, Pannirchelvam pointed at the woman's breast, asking if the coffee came from "this" machine.
For insulting the modesty of the woman, he was fined S$1,000.
During the two hours the accused spent at the cafe, he also threw a bowl of food at a supervisor, leaving noodles on his head.
The act took place when the supervisor was in the midst of processing Pannirchelvam's bill.
At that time, the 44-year-old supervisor's back was facing the accused, but the offence was captured on CCTV.
The victim left the cafe for the hotel lobby, looking for the duty manager. Pannirchelvam followed the victim.
Pannirchelvam then walked up to the cafe supervisor and hit him on his nose.
For throwing the bowl and hurting the victim's ear in the process, Pannirchelvam was given six weeks' jail.
For hitting the victim on his nose, the court handed the accused another two months behind bars.
