It takes two hands to handle a whopper but it took a foot and an elbow to land a disgruntled Hungry Jack’s customer in jail.
Nicky Edward Abbott, 32, was on a suspended imprisonment order when he rocked up to a HJ’s drive-through in Geraldton just before 3am on October 23.
When he was refused service, he went to the front of the fast-food outlet and verbally abused a staff member before kicking a glass door and striking it with his elbow until it smashed.
The Geraldton Guardian’s Francesca Mann reports Abbott appeared via video link in the local magistrate’s court last week and pleaded guilty to criminal damage of property.
Magistrate Chris Miocevich gave him three months in the big house for the criminal damage and six-month and three-month sentences for two common assaults that were the subject of the original suspended imprisonment order.
The sentences will run concurrently, meaning Abbott must wait six months to find out if the burgers really are better at Hungry Jack’s.
