Not go­ing qui­etly

Whitsunday Times - - NEWS COURT -

AN AF­TER­NOON of drink­ing ended very badly for Ja­son An­thoney Nielsen.

Po­lice saw the 33-year-old Can­non­vale man hav­ing an ar­gu­ment with a woman on Shute Har­bour Rd, near Beaches around 11.30pm on April 15 and heard him say “don’t touch me you f****** c***”.

Af­ter po­lice asked for his name, Nielsen de­manded they ar­rest him but later at­tempted to walk away. Po­lice walked him to their car where dur­ing a search, he be­came ag­gres­sive and started pulling his arm away from them. Af­ter strug­gling to hand­cuff him, an of­fi­cer re­ceived a gash on his arm.

Duty lawyer Cleo Re­wald said al­co­hol had played a sig­nif­i­cant part in the in­ci­dent.

Nielsen was fined $1000, or­dered to do 40 hours of com­mu­nity ser­vice and banned from the Air­lie Beach Safe Night Precinct for six months.

Con­vic­tions were recorded.
