Com­mu­nity ser­vice for ob­struct­ing po­lice

Whitsunday Times - - NEWS -

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.
