Sports bar scuffle lands man in court

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.
