A WOMAN WHO WAS the alleged victim of a “terrifying” road rage attack had her case dismissed as she had problems with her childcare.

The case was adjourned in November as Ms Adeoti had to take her child to the hospital.
The court heard that she had attended court today (Wednesday) but told her solicitor that she would have to be away by 3pm as she needed to release her babysitter and pick up her other daughter from school.
Defending solicitor told the court that stated cases indicated that the court should deal with all matters “expeditiously”
Chair of magistrates, Mrs Kurton dismissed the case.
Mr Chapman, who was in the dock, was free to leave.
