A LONG-standing dispute has landed an Agnes Water man in court following a scuffle at a sports bar.
Attila Cipak was originally facing a charge of common assault, but it was downgraded to creating a disturbance in the Bundaberg Magistrates Court today.
Police Prosecutor Senior Constable Vicki Kennedy-Grills said Cipak and his partner attended the Captain Creek Sport and Recreation Club on September 8 last year.
Snr Const Grills said Cipak had approached the informant in the beer garden at which point, a scuffle ensued.
Cipak's lawyer, Rian Dwyer, said his 46-year-old client, who was a father of five, was very remorseful for the incident.
Mr Dwyer said the incident had started over a long-standing dispute with his partner and the informant over a damaged property fence.
"It's only a fineable offence," he told Magistrate Deb Vasta.
Mrs Vasta took into account Cipak spent two nights in custody and did not further punish him.
No conviction was recorded.
