Community service for obstructing police
A JUBILEE Pocket man will have to do 40 hours community service for obstructing police officers when they were trying to arrest him.
Charles William Gary Gibbons, 27, pleaded guilty in Proserpine Magistrates’ Court on Monday to obstructing a police officer in a public place while adversely affected by an intoxicating substance.
Prosecutor Robert Beamish told the court Gibbons tried to pull his arms away from police when they attempted to issue him a public nuisance notice in the Airlie Beach safe night precinct on August 4.
The court heard Gibbons also dug his feet into the ground when police tried to walk him to their vehicle and pushed back against them when they tried to put him in the vehicle.
Gibbons was ordered to do his community service within six months.
No conviction was recorded against him.
