‘Dry humper’ caught on CCTV

THERE are some actions that should be enjoyed in the privacy of your own home, but a man was caught in an embarrassing position on Warwick’s main drag which led to a court appearance yesterday.

The lure of a light-blue Datsun sedan appealed to Conrad James Wi-Tipuna Van Kan, who pleaded guilty to wilfully damaging the vehicle during the act of ‘dry humping’.

Police prosecutor Ken Wiggan said about 9pm on June 19 the 20-year-old was seen on the vehicle’s bonnet and was also captured on CCTV footage. The thrusting caused $382.42 worth of damage to the parked car on Palmerin Street.

Van Kan’s defence counsel told the Warwick Magistrates Court his client had been drinking at a function with the “football guys” from Warwick’s Rugby Union team the Water Rats.

“He’s bumped the mud-guard with his knee and didn’t realise he had caused the damage,” the defence counsel said.

“He has no history and is very remorseful.”

Magistrate Anne Thacker said it was “stupid behaviour that won’t happen again”.

The Warwick man was placed on a good behaviour for nine months with $400 recognisance and ordered to pay the $382.42 to repair the Datsun’s damaged mud-guard.

No conviction was recorded.
