Rowdy supporters of 2 charged in pregnant teen's beating arrested

Bail was set Tuesday for two women charged with kicking, roughing up and robbing a pregnant Bronx teen but it was the havoc created by their supporters that took centerstage at court.

After the arraignments of Serenity Dunham, 19, and Tiffany Nurse, 27, where bail was set at $ 30,000 and $ 40,000 respectively court officers promptly arrested supporters Dangelo Davis and Lakea Varner for unruly behavior.

“I love you, cousin!” Varner yelled at the end of the court hearing.

The shout-out triggered more yelling from relatives in the room, and court officers swiftly moved in to escort some family members out and cuff Davis and Varner.

“At the conclusion of the arraignment, two family members became loud and belligerent and refused several lawful orders to vacate the (courtroom) vestibule,” said a spokesman for the Office of Court Administration.

Davis and Varner were given three summonses for making noise, obscene language and blocking the exit to the courtroom.

Davis was also given a summons for marijuana possession.

They’re due back in court Apri 10.
