Parolee blames drink spiking for erratic behavior

A PAROLEE who passed an afternoon of his newly found freedom by swearing at cars from a median strip said drink spiking was to blame for his erratic behaviour.

The Warwick Magistrates Court last week heard David Andrew Weribone was abusing motorists as they stopped at red lights in Toowoomba last month.

When officers arrived at the scene, Weribone continued to be belligerent - running into the road and resisting police attempts to handcuff him.

The 44-year-old's solicitor told the court his client couldn't explain his behaviour but believed someone may have drugged him.

"This offence involves no violence - he wasn't fighting, he was just going on like an idiot," he said.

The Warwick man pleaded guilty to obstructing police and public nuisance.

He was sentenced to a three-month jail term, which was suspended for 18 months.
