TELLING police you are untouchable is probably not a great move, as one 25-year-old man learnt in Gladstone Magistrates Court on Tuesday.
Toby Micchele Di Cola pleaded guilty to one charge of contravening a police direction or requirement, after a drunken episode just after midnight on June 8.
The court heard Di Cola approached police and started telling them they couldn't control him, with police prosecutor Sergeant Mick O'Rourke repeating Di Cola's words.
"You can't touch me," Di Cola told officers, after he had been told to leave the CBD for his behaviour at the Central Ln Hotel.
Despite being ordered to exit the city limits of Gladstone, Di Cola was seen about half an hour later trying to enter MIe Place nightclub, when he was promptly arrested.
"I may have just indulged myself a bit too much," Di Cola admitted to Magistrate Penelope Hay.
Di Cola was fined $350, but avoided a conviction.
