Jilted lover wanders streets with tomahawk

WHEN he thought his girlfriend was cheating on him, an Allora man armed himself with a tomahawk and set off to find her.

Allen John Williams was arrested after residents noticed him wandering the streets with the home-made weapon in his hand.

The Warwick Magistrates Court last week heard the 45-year-old suffered a cognitive impairment from a head injury he sustained as a child.

His defence lawyer said her client was off his medication at the time of the incident and had been drinking earlier that day.

She assured the court Williams had since resumed his medication.

He pleaded guilty to public nuisance and was fined $400.
