'I will f---ing bash you': Drunk man abuses paramedics
WHEN the Queensland Ambulance Service pulled over in Murgon to offer assistance to Aussie Rose they were met with abuse.
"He yelled at the ambulance staff 'I will f---ing bash you' through the window of the vehicle," Police prosecutor Pepe Gangemi said in Murgon Magistrates Court.
Magistrate Louisa Pink condemned the actions of Rose, 21, who was drunk at the time.
"They are there doing a job on behalf of the community and there to help you and you ended up threatening them," she said.
"You should know that if you behave this way when you are drunk, you shouldn't drink to that extent if you want to avoid being back before the court potentially on more serious conduct."
Snr Sgt Gangemi said Rose became agitated and was visibly drunk when trying to re-enact being forcibly removed from Murgon's Royal Hotel moments earlier.
At 10.20pm on February 15, Rose was forcibly removed from Murgon's Royal Hotel by employees and patrons.
Snr Sgt Gangemi said Rose refused to leave when asked and began making threats, causing patrons to help remove him.
Defence lawyer Mark Werner said Rose, who typically does not drink in excess, was regretful of his actions and has since been banned from the hotel.
"He accepts that he behaved very badly, was very regretful and embarrassed and has since apologised to the pub owner," he said.
Magistrate Pink recalled that committing offences while drunk was not a factor in reducing a sentence.
He was fined $500 for failing to leave a licensed premises and a further $500 for committing public nuisance within the vicinity of a licenced premises.
No conviction was recorded, with Magistrate Pink taking into account that Rose is looking for employment.
