Banned from club after at­tack

Fraser Coast Chronicle - - NEWS -

A FOOL­ISH hooli­gan has been banned from en­ter­ing Her­vey Bay night­club Smoke’n’leather for the next year be­cause he ran­domly punched an­other pa­tron in the face dur­ing a rowdy night out.

Billy Jack Flood, 21, had never had any prior deal­ings with the man who he as­saulted in­side the venue on Novem­ber 17.

The vic­tim suf­fered cuts to his lip and chin and re­quired stitches.

Flood has pleaded guilty in Her­vey Bay Mag­is­trates Court to as­sault oc­ca­sion­ing bod­ily harm.

The court heard the vic­tim had no idea why he had been at­tacked. De­fence lawyer Trin­ity McGarvie ex­plained that Flood had been un­der the im­pres­sion that the vic­tim had been in an al­ter­ca­tion with one of his friends ear­lier.

Flood has since writ­ten an apol­ogy let­ter to the in­jured man.

On top of be­ing banned for 12-month from the club, Flood was con­victed and fined $800.
