One crazy club night

Whitsunday Times - - NEWS COURT -

LOS­ING your shoes and scuf­fling with se­cu­rity – one Mo­ran­bah man has paid the price for his crazy night out.

Hay­den James Claf­fey, 26, was par­ty­ing at Mama Africa night­club in Air­lie Beach on Fe­bru­ary 27 around 1.35am when he was asked to leave.

Prose­cu­tor Bern­hard Berger said po­lice were ap­proached by se­cu­rity about a fight out­side the club.

Po­lice then ob­served three se­cu­rity guards hold­ing down Claf­fey be­fore ar­rest­ing him.

Se­cu­rity told po­lice he was “knock­ing into peo­ple and tak­ing his shoes off af­ter be­ing told to put them back on”.

He then re-en­tered the club and was asked to leave again but re­fused and had to be forcibly re­moved.

Things only got worst for Claf­fey as a po­lice pat down re­vealed he had a small metal round tin with a white pow­der in­side it.

Af­ter be­ing trans­ported to the watch­house, he was searched again and po­lice found three clip seal bags.

Claf­fey ad­mit­ted to po­lice they were his and that it was “left­over MDMA”.

Mag­is­trate Ron Muir­head said Claf­fey did have a his­tory of pub­lic nui­sance but they were dated.

Claf­fey was fined a to­tal of $2000 for the of­fences and had con­vic­tions recorded.
