Boozer tore fly-screen to get back in pub

A 22-YEAR-OLD who was kicked out of a pub for being too drunk tried to regain entry by tearing through a fly-screen window at the venue.

At Ipswich Magistrates Court this week, Jesse William Lefoe pleaded guilty to wilful damage.

Police prosecutor Constable Daniel Swanson said Lefoe was drinking at the Rosevale Retreat Hotel when he committed the offence about 10.30pm on April 4.

Defence lawyer Amy Little said Lefoe had been so drunk he did not remember damaging the fly screen but was remorseful.

"My client said it was the stupidest thing he has done in his life," Ms Little said.

She said Lefoe worked as a concreter and had no criminal history.

He was put on a $200 good behaviour bond for two months, with no convictions recorded.
