‘Drunk and stupid’ admits G150 drinker
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.
