❝should Why I re­spect what you want to do in the fu­ture when you have no re­spect for your be­hav­iour in Queens­land? — Mag­is­trate Young

AN Air­lie Beach man demon­strated that “drown­ing his sor­rows” on his ex-girl­friend’s birth­day was not a bright idea.

On July 9, Jar­rod Davies, 24, made a scene in front of po­lice and wit­nesses at a taxi rank in the Safe Night Precinct at 1.20am.

As po­lice be­gan writ­ing an in­fringe­ment no­tice, Davies touched the of­fi­cer and held his mo­bile phone just inches from his face.

Davies was given a 10 day ban­ning no­tice but, on July 16, po­lice found him en­ter­ing the Shed Bar.

De­fence solic­i­tor Eliz­a­beth Smith said Davies had plans for over­seas work which could be hin­dered by the record­ing of a con­vic­tion.

Mag­is­trate Si­mon Young asked Davies: “Why should I re­spect what you want to do in the fu­ture when you have no re­spect for your be­hav­iour in Queens­land?”

Davies was fined $1500 but no con­vic­tion was recorded.
