Good deed ends with fine

A WOMAN who tried to assist a collapsed stranger has been fined $150 after things went awry.

Julie Ann West appeared in Gladstone Magistrates Court on Tuesday and pleaded guilty to being drunk and disorderly.

The court heard how, on February 16, West was at Calliope Central Bowls Club when she observed another person "pass out".

The 53-year-old immediately called an ambulance but did not notify staff.

When the QAS arrived, staff were still not aware of the situation and, according to defence lawyer Megan Creaser, were "ticked off" they had not been notified.

This led to a heated argument between West and staff, with West refusing to leave the premises and yelling she was "never coming back to this f---king club". She also grabbed the mother of the unconscious woman by the shoulders and yelled, "I've been banned because of this".

Police were then called.

West has been banned from the Calliope Central Bowls Club indefinitely.
