KAI Williams, 28, is likely to think harder about his relationship with alcohol after an appearance in the Proserpine court this week.
At 9.30pm on June 10, Williams was seen helping a woman, who had fallen to the ground in front of Magnums, Airlie Beach.
Security guards had indicated for police to approach, but when they did Williams began swearing loudly that the “security guards were all c***s” Prosecutor Bernhard Berger said.
Williams then denied having ID although police could see a wallet in his back pocket.
Police established he had been asked to leave Magnums but became aggressive and resisted eviction.
Jennine Kiley from the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Legal Services (ATSILS) said Williams had admitted to her “he doesn’t act appropriately when he’s out drinking and that’s why since 2013 he hasn’t been out drinking”.
Ms Kiley said the night in question had been an unfortunate “case of deja vu” but she noted he hadn’t gone out since.
Magistrate Simon Young said Williams had some “extensive” history and this was “a continuation of some long-standing patterns of behaviour”.
But he felt the appropriate steps towards a different path were being taken.
Williams was fined $500.
