Police found him and arrested him.

McNeil was ordered to pay a $300 fine and $176 in restitution to the Commercial Hotel.

Paying for punches

A WOMAN who punched a hole in her Housing Commission residence has been fined for her violent outburst.

Kelly Maree Thompson plead guilty to one charge of wilful damage after she struck a wall during an argument with her partner.

Bundaberg Magistrates Court today heard Thompson struck a wall twice with her fists in the home in which she, her partner and five young children, all under 12, live.

Thompson had since fixed the wall. The "extremely remorseful” mother was fined $200.
