was a low read­ing and “eas­ily the most un­for­tu­nate way that some­one gets caught”.

Hen­shall was fined $330 and disqual­i­fied from driv­ing for three months.

Change of shirt

Lewis Wil­liam Mar­cham pleaded guilty in writ­ing to con­tra­ven­ing a po­lice di­rec­tion.

At 11.55pm on March 13, po­lice were flagged down by se­cu­rity guards at Beaches on the Air­lie main street, where Mar­cham had punched a wall af­ter be­ing evicted due to his level of in­tox­i­ca­tion.

Po­lice took up with the 21-year-old UK na­tional and gave him an of­fi­cial move-on di­rec­tion. Mar­cham was re­quired to leave the Air­lie CBD and not re­turn un­til af­ter 6am but at 12.25am he was seen walk­ing past the Mama Africa night­club in the di­rec­tion of the CBD.

He told po­lice he re­turned to his room at XBase and changed his shirt in the hope they would not recog­nise him. He re­ceived a $440 fine.

Fail­ure to pro­vide ID

A charge against Casey Dawn Marie McAvoy of con­tra­ven­ing a po­lice re­quire­ment was dealt with in her ab­sence.

On March 2, McAvoy was is­sued with a no­tice to at­tend the Proser­pine Po­lice Sta­tion with her ID par­tic­u­lars within seven days.

She failed to at­tend as re­quired, say­ing she sim­ply for­got. The 22-year-old was is­sued with a $330 fine.


Wes­ley Colin Spencer pleaded guilty to pos­sess­ing pro­hib­ited ex­plo­sives, namely fire­works.

At 6.50am on Au­gust 28, de­tec­tives from the Whit­sun­day Crim­i­nal In­ves­ti­ga­tion Branch (CIB) ex­e­cuted a search war­rant at Spencer’s Shute Har­bour Road ad­dress, find­ing a fire­works cylin­der with the word ‘whirl­wind’ writ­ten on it. Spencer’s so­lic­i­tor Ryan Arm­strong said the fire­works were pur­chased from Can­berra in 2004 and were not the type used in commercial set­tings.

He said Spencer in­tended to dis­pose of them but couldn’t sim­ply take them to the tip.

The 25-year-old re­ceived a $330 fine.
