'Arrest me': Happy fiancé peed off, proof is the wet patch

THE wow factor hit newly engaged lad Zane Te-Puke with a load of positive endorphins and alcohol but his party night out celebrating soured when he challenged police to arrest him.

The Gladstone boys in blue cheerfully obliged and did - with Te-Puke admitting in court he has no memories of his bad behaviour.

He denied peeing in the street but police said his urine-wet trousers gave it away.

Te-Puke, 24, a scaffolder, pleaded guilty in Gladstone Magistrates Court to contravening a police direction to move-on near licensed premises in a designated Safe Night precinct on Sunday November 22.

Prosecutor Gavin Reece said police were on patrol that night and came across a highly intoxicated Te-Puke who was "argumentative" with officers.

Mr Reece said Te-Puke told police they had no proof he had urinated despite the officers seeing wet urine on his pants.

He continued to argue with police about moving on and Mr Reece said he threw a police issued infringement notice on the ground and shouted "arrest me".

Defence lawyer Kylie Devney said Te-Puke had been out celebrating his engagement "and can't remember the offence".

She said he was not a drinker and the night had been the first time he drank alcohol in six months and obviously had over indulged.

She said he was now ashamed of the police facts.

Ms Devney said Te-Puke's judgement was affected by alcohol but sought magistrate Mark Morrow to take into account he had no criminal history and travelled often between Australia and New Zealand.

Mr Morrow agreed that his judgement had been impaired that night and fined him $175 with no conviction recorded.

Dredging begins in Gladstone's port

Dredging the 2.3km Narrows crossing of the QCLNG and APLNG gas pipelines. The dredging involves a small backhoe dredge mounted on a barge, two tug boats, a survey vessel. After the pipelines are laid in the same trench, they will be covered with rock for protection from shipping and will still allow sufficient depth for boat traffic through The Narrows.

BUOYS removed to make room for dredging operations.
