City 'bad boy' warned
SERIAL delinquent and local brat pack member Levi Jason Clarke-Davis appeared in court yet again this week, after taking part in a violent, publicised brawl in which he punched another man in the side of the face.
Clarke-Davis, 17, fronted Warwick Magistrates Court on Tuesday charged with public nuisance, less than a month after he appeared in the court for a similar offence.
The court heard police were monitoring CCTV on Thursday, June 2 at about 6pm when they spotted a brawl involving about 10 people taking place near the Town Hall.
During the fight Clarke-Davis was seen by police to circle an individual - who it was heard did not retaliate against his attacker - before punching him in the side of his face.
The police prosecutor told the court Clarke-Davis continued circling the victim before another individual punched the victim.
During proceedings the teen's lawyer was questioned on his client's employment status.
He replied Clarke-Davis was unemployed and considered himself likely to remain jobless, due to his budding reputation as "one of the perceived bad boys" in town.
Clarke-Davis appeared in the same court on June 14, where it was heard he and a group of youths circled and taunted police in retaliation for earlier arrests.
He also faced charges related to possessing both drugs and tainted property during last month's appearance.
Magistrate Anne Thacker this week told Clarke-Davis "you're looking like a persistent problem in the community".
She warned him if he didn't act responsibly he would be removed from the community.
Clarke-Davis will now put at least some of his spare time to good use, after being ordered to undertake 80 hours of community service within the next 12 months.
