Kicked out of pub at bull ride

Whitsunday Times - - NEWS -

A MAN who threat­ened to unin­stall grand­stand seat­ing at a bull ride af­ter he was ejected from a ho­tel, has been fined $750.

Gavin Troy Le Strange, 43, from Proser­pine, pleaded guilty in Proser­pine Mag­is­trates Court on Mon­day to con­tra­ven­ing the di­rec­tion or re­quire­ment of po­lice and at­tempt­ing to re-en­ter li­censed premises af­ter he was re­moved.

Pros­e­cu­tor Robert Beamish told the court when Le Strange was ejected from the Kut­tabul Ho­tel at Kut­tabul on Oc­to­ber 6 he was in­tox­i­cated and made threats to unin­stall grand­stand seat­ing at a bull ride event which he had been em­ployed to in­stall the day be­fore.

At 10.55pm he at­tempted to re-en­ter the premises and re­fused to give his name and ad­dress to po­lice when they were called, Mr Beamish said.

He also told po­lice he “would not say any­thing with­out a lawyer”, the pros­e­cu­tor said.

Rep­re­sent­ing him­self in court, Le Strange said he was camped in an area out­side the pub that was des­ig­nated as part of an al­co­hol zone and did not ac­tu­ally try to re-en­ter the ho­tel. He had, how­ever, been warned by po­lice to stay at his camp in the camp­ing area, Le Strange said.

A man who tried to re-en­ter a li­censed premises af­ter he was kicked out, faced Proser­pine Mag­is­trates Court.
