32-year-old man attempts to fight juveniles
A 32-YEAR-OLD man tried to plead his case in Dalby Magistrate Court after he attempted to fight a group of juveniles earlier this year.
Police prosecutor sergeant Derek Brady told the court Shawne Boney arrived at a residential address on North Street, Dalby with the intent to start a fight.
“Police were called to an address on North Street at 3.30pm earlier this year where the defendant was acting in an aggressive manor towards six juveniles,” Sgt Brady said.
“Police found the defendant on Eileen Street yelling ‘let’s go c —t.”
Police were able to break up the fight and all involved were told to move on.
Boney’s lawyer Michael McElhinney told the court the defendant had received information about the juveniles related to some personal information which is what caused the aggressive out burst.
Magistrate Tracy Mossop shook her head when she heard the facts before turning to Boney and condemned his behaviour.
“You behaved like an ass,” Ms Mossop said.
Boney then tried to justify his behaviour before getting shut down.
“I don’t need you to try and justify your action,” Ms Mossop said.
“The fact of the matter is you used poor language in front of children who ranged from the age of 10-14 and you do not seem one bit remorseful for your actions.”
Boney was found guilty on one charge of committing public nuisance and fined $200.
A conviction was recorded.
