Rocks and scuf­fles at home fight

Whitsunday Times - - NEWS COURT -

A MESSY neigh­bour­hood spat that in­volved throw­ing rocks has landed one man on pro­ba­tion.

Anthony Lee Wiggett, 17, from Can­non­vale, pleaded guilty to charges of tres­pass­ing and as­sault in Proser­pine Mag­is­trates Court on Mon­day.

The in­ci­dent oc­curred on Jan­uary 3 around 10pm out­side a Can­non­vale home when Wiggett went to con­front his girl­friend’s ex-boyfriend.

Prose­cu­tor Bern­hard Berger said that as Wiggett was ap­proach­ing the house he saw one of the men and yelled “tell your f ****** son not to text my girl­friend or else”.

A scuf­fle broke out as the man grabbed Wiggett’s arm.

It was even­tu­ally bro­ken up, but as Wiggett walked away he turned and said “your kids are f ***** , I’m go­ing to kill them”.

A rock was then thrown to­wards Wiggett, which hit his car. He then picked up the rock and threw it back, hit­ting one of the men at the house in the hip.

Mag­is­trate Ron Muir­head said “the bot­tom line is when you were told to leave, you should have left”, he said.

Wiggett was placed on six months’ pro­ba­tion and had no con­vic­tion recorded.
