‘Drunk and stupid’ ad­mits G150 drinker

The Gympie Times - - NEWS -

A YOUNG Gympie woman who swore ex­ten­sively at po­lice at last month’s G150 Jimmy Barnes con­cert, ad­mit­ted she was “drunk and stupid”.

“There’s no doubt about that,” Mag­is­trate John Parker re­sponded in the Gympie court yes­ter­day.

Kas­san­dra Hope Eloise An­der­son Pear­son, 18, pleaded guilty to be­ing a pub­lic nui­sance at the con­cert’s Al­bert Park venue on Oc­to­ber 14.

She ad­mit­ted say­ing, as the po­lice pros­e­cu­tor put it: “Give me my f ..... g drink back, you c..t,’ or words to that ef­fect.”

Mr Parker told An­der­son Pear­son she was lucky po­lice had gone easy on her.

“Po­lice were very nice to you,” he said.

“They only charged you with pub­lic nui­sance rather than ob­struct­ing po­lice.”

The court was told the swear­ing had been in front of fam­i­lies and chil­dren and oc­curred about 5.20pm, when po­lice found her group car­ry­ing al­co­hol.

Mr Parker fined her $400 and or­dered that no con­vic­tion be recorded.
