Kicked out of pub at bull ride
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.
