Sisters' fight ends in court
A TWEED Heads West teenager ransacked her sister’s house on a visit to Sydney, the Tweed Heads Local Court heard.
Elle Callaghan, 18, went out drinking with her 19-year-old sibling at a hotel on April 29, but upon their return to the Potts Point residence at 2am, they had an argument.
It developed into a physical fight inside the house and the victim locked herself in her room. When she heard Callaghan leave the unit, she returned to the living area to find the LCD television smashed on the ground, a glass door smashed, food on the floor and blood stains on the carpet.
Callaghan pleaded guilty to recklessly destroy property and common assault and was fined $526.
Magistrate Michael Dakin said it appeared the “sibling animosity simmering beneath the surface boiled over on this occasion”.
