Man with ‘at­ti­tude’ to cool off be­hind bars

Whitsunday Times - - WHITSUNDAY NEWS AND VIEWS -

A MAN who swore at Proser­pine mag­is­trate Haydn St­jern­qvist, telling him to “get f****d”, will re­main be­hind bars un­til his next court ap­pear­ance on Novem­ber 24.

Adam David Sei­del was brought to Mon­day’s sit­ting of the Proser­pine Mag­is­trate’s Court in po­lice cus­tody, charged with three counts of con­tra­ven­ing a do­mes­tic vi­o­lence or­der, two of common as­sault, two of pos­sess­ing re­stricted items, and one each of pos­sess­ing a knife in a pub­lic place, pos­sess­ing drugs, fail­ing to prop­erly dis­pose of a sy­ringe, ob­struct­ing po­lice and com­mit­ting a pub­lic nui­sance of­fence.

Sei­del’s outburst be­gan shortly after he en­tered the pris­oner’s dock where he re­fused to sit down or lis­ten to what the mag­is­trate had to say.

Po­lice pros­e­cu­tor El­iz­a­beth Smith told po­lice to re­move Sei­del from the court but he re­sisted and was forcibly led out.

At 10.50pm he was brought back to the court room and a sim­i­lar sce­nario oc­curred.

“I don’t want to lis­ten to the c***t mate,” Sei­del said to po­lice, telling Mr St­jern­qvist to just “hurry up mate” and re­mand him in cus­tody un­til another date.

Ms Smith noted “it doesn’t sound like he’s mak­ing an ap­pli­ca­tion for bail”.

She also said Sei­del was likely to face fresh charges for his “carry-on” in the dock.

Mr St­jern­qvist said Sei­del would next ap­pear in court via a video link with the Capri­cor­nia Cor­rec­tional Cen­tre on Novem­ber 24, giv­ing him “time to detox, or dry out, or get rid of a bit of at­ti­tude”.
