A man was ordered to pay a Dh5,000 fine for abusing and swearing at his ex-wife in Das Al Khaimah.
His wife, in turn, was also ordered to pay a Dh4,000 fine for verbally assaulting her ex-husband.
The woman had complained that her ex-husband had hurt her and kidnapped their children the same day the court had awarded her sole custody.
Footage from CCTV security cameras showed the man running out of the house. The wife alleged he had beaten her up and then ran out with their kids. Footage shows them getting into the car of their own volition.
But when he tried to drive off, his ex-wife grabbed the car door to prevent them leaving.
According to the wife's lawyer, her ex-husband drove the car in a circle while the door was open, where she can be seen tightly holding onto the door.
She lost her balance and fell, losing consciousness.
The husband denied intentionally hurting her or beating her up. He claimed he didn't see her grab onto the car door. 
The court found him innocent of kidnapping his children, and she innocent of threatening him.
Both were ordered to pay the court fees.
