Man slapped with $750 fine for swearing at police

A MAN who swore at police officers as they attempted to break up a suburban street brawl was fined for his actions.

David Leslie Wiggins was fined $750 for obstructing police and committing a public nuisance on August 24.

Police were called to the street fight on Cosmos St, Springfield, after neighbours reported five men brawling on the road.

When officers attempted to break up the fight, Wiggins pushed an officer in the chest with both hands and swore at the officer.

Ipswich Magistrates Court heard he continued to obstruct police until he was restrained.

Wiggins told the court he was embarrassed by his behaviour.

"I'm disgusted with my actions and embarrassed by my actions," he said.

"I don't want to let it happen again."

Magistrate Andy Cridland did not record a conviction.
