Jailed tourists return home, speak out about ordeal
A group of Brooklyn tourists arrested while vacationing in Barbados are back home and speaking out for the first time about their ordeal.
Known as the "Antigua Six," the group spoke at Borough Hall Friday. The tourists were arrested last month in Antigua after an argument with a cab driver turned into a brawl with police.
Twelve tourists were put in jail and charged with battery. Six of them paid a fine and were sent home. The remaining six argued their case in the Barbados Court System.
The group was able to strike a plea deal and return home with the help of activists and local officials.
