A DRUNK woman who accused a fellow resident of being a witch had to be subdued by police using CS gas.

Haddy Gaye, 23, of Neath Street, Bedminster became angry after drinking alcohol and returned to the accommodation she and the victim, Cornelia Shimi, then both lived in.

The pair began chatting and Gaye spoke to Ms Shimi about problems she was having with her boyfriend.

Laura Opie, prosecuting, told Bristol magistrates that during the course of the evening, on May 31, Gaye became angry and started accusing Ms Shimi of being a witch.

“Ms Shimi had broken her leg and wasn’t able to defend herself when Gaye grabbed her arm and poured a can of lager over her head,” Miss Opie told the court…..

….The accommodation in Hillside, Cotham, where the incident took place was specifically for people with mental health issues.

Mr Richardson said that Gaye had come to the UK from Gambia as a 13-year-old in 2002
