'Attack' fuelled incident

A WARWICK man who waved a fuel nozzle around while screaming threats and obscenities told police he was protecting himself against further attacks.

Christopher Jonathan Thew was found by police near a Warwick service station just after midnight on October 20.

Officers were called to the area when a witness reported a man blocking traffic to the service station, while "waving the nozzle and yelling at someone or something".

When spoken to by police, Thew admitted to being the person responsible.

He told police he had been punched in the head by a number of men and was defending himself.

Defence counsel for Thew told the court his client had a sore head for three days following the alleged attack and he had possibly been concussed.

Thew pleaded guilty to public nuisance in the Warwick Magistrates Court this week.

The court heard he had three pages of criminal history, including similar offending.

The 26-year-old was slapped with a $450 fine.
