Last chance for man in court

YOU do it again, you go to jail.

Those were the words of Magistrate Neil Lavaring yesterday as he dealt with a 22-year-old who had breached his probation.

Timothy Michael Payne, of Walkervale, pleaded guilty in Bundaberg Magistrates Court to public nuisance and obstructing police.

The court heard that after being questioned by police outside the Queenslander Hotel on August 6, the man caused a disturbance abusing police. After several warnings, police attempted to arrest Payne, who was evasive and kept pulling away.

He was fined $500 for breaching probation and given a one-month wholly suspended term of imprisonment with a two-year operational period.

“You've got a bit of an attitude problem,” Mr Lavaring said to Payne. “Next time you're going to jail.”
