Friday Cocktail – unfortunately it was a molotov.

Patience before action is underrated in my humble opinion.

KUALA LUMPUR – A feud between two neighbours over a tree took a nasty turn when one of them was charged in court for attempting to burn the other’s house down.

Law Chee Wai, 47, pleaded guilty in a magistrate’s court here to throwing a bottle filled with diesel into the house compound of trader Chia Weng Tze, 26.

The offence occurred in their neighbourhood in Taman Tyton View, Cheras, here at about 11pm on Nov 5.

The quarrel occurred as Law’s trees had encroached into Chia’s property.

Court documents also revealed Law had often thrown bottles and glass into Chia’s house, and had previously threatened him.

Law was arrested on Nov 6 and charged with criminal intimidation under Section 506 of the Penal Code.

DPP Kee Wei Lon asked for a deterrent punishment so Law could learn from his mistake.

Law’s counsel Khairul Amin Abdullah, however, asked for a light sentence, saying this was his client’s first offence and he had repented.

Magistrate Nur Azura Murah fined Law RM1,100(S$440) and said he would be jailed for one month if he failed to pay.

Law’s mother paid the fine.
