Bundaberg Magistrates Court wrap-up for Friday:

Festival fight

A MAN involved in a punch-up in the middle of Churchill St during the Childers Festival in July has been sentenced to two months imprisonment.

Jason Bruce Hamilton pleaded guilty in Bundaberg Magistrates Court today to one charge each of public nuisance and possessing dangerous drugs.

The court heard Hamilton was involved in a fight and later abused police officers in front of families.

Magistrate Deborah Vasta said witnessing a fight was "scary" for children as well as adults.

She sentenced Hamilton to two months imprisonment but ordered immediate parole release.

Chef unlicensed

A BUNDABERG chef who works onboard a ship that travels to the Antarctica has lost her licence.

Rebecca Joy Lee, 38, returned a blood alcohol reading of 0.055% when she was intercepted on Quay St early Sunday.

Lee pleaded guilty in Bundaberg Magistrates Court today to one charge of drink driving.

Magistrate Deborah Vasta fined the chef $400 and disqualified her from driving for one month.

Licence dilemma

A MAN who appeared in court for unlicensed, uninsured and unregistered driving told a magistrate he had no idea he could have applied for a driver's licence six years earlier.

Paul Robert Beaumont pleaded guilty to the charges in Bundaberg Magistrates Court this morning and said he thought he was still disqualified from driving despite his ban being lifted in 2006.

Magistrate Deborah Vasta fined the man $1000, but instead of disqualifying him from obtaining a licence, she encouraged him to go out and sit the test.

"I'll do it now," he said.

DV breach

A 52-YEAR-OLD man who breached a domestic violence order has been granted bail.

The man appeared in the docks of Bundaberg Magistrates Court today where an application for bail was made.

Magistrate Deborah Vasta granted the man bail and set the matter down for 9am on December 17.
