NAMED: Warwick nights out gone wrong
Whether it was flashing someone at the pub or drink driving, here are the latest cases before Warwick courts that show a big night out doesn’t always end in fun:
The Warwick Magistrates Court heard the 26-year-old “acted impulsively” when he kicked in the front window of Rosewool Uggs and Rugs to impress friends.
The “deplorable” act led to a $3533 clean up bill.
Phillips pleaded guilty to wilful damage.
He was fined $250 and ordered to pay $3533 in restitution.
The Stanthorpe man was at the Stanthorpe Hotel in September when he repeatedly tried to interrupt police officers’ conversation, shouting “C---s” at them when he was shooed away.
He then flashed the crowd as police walked him out.
McMeniman pleaded guilty to one count each of obstructing police, wilful exposure in a public place, and drunk and disorderly conduct.
He was fined $1000 and no conviction was recorded.
Rose City resident Lachlan James McLellan thought he was safe to drive after celebrating the New Year’s.
Instead, he was caught driving with a blood alcohol concentration of 0.051 and ordered to front Warwick Magistrates Court.
McLellan pleaded guilty to drink driving and was fined $350 and disqualified from driving for one month.
No conviction was recorded.
Benussi, 31, was drinking at the Stanthorpe Hotel when picked up a chair and threw it over the balcony, almost hitting police officers on the footpath below.
Benussi pleaded guilty to one count of wilful damage.
He was fined $250 and ordered to pay a further $100 in restitution. No conviction was recorded.
DRUNK DOOR DASH
A drunk Brett Howard Bennet tried to force his way into a house he thought was his own after a big night in December.
When the 51-year-old realised his mistake, he drove away, but not before almost hitting a parked car.
Nabbed with a BAC four and a half times the legal limit, Bennett pleaded guilty to one count of drink driving.
He was placed on 15 months’ probation and disqualified from driving for 12 months.
A round of shots with a mate turned costly for Lachlan John Moore back in November.
The 21-year-old got behind the wheel after the pub date, attracting police when he drove over safety poles at a roadworks site.
Moore pleaded guilty to one count of drink driving.
He was fined $350 and no conviction was recorded.
