$400 fine for public nuisance offender after foul outburst

A 25-YEAR-OLD man admitted to having a binge drinking problem when he fronted Gladstone Magistrates Court on Tuesday.

The man appeared before the court on one count of public nuisance.

The defendant was found by police asleep on the side of Goondoon St on December 8 last year.

Mark Foyster was awoken and asked for identification by attending police officers.

In reply Foyster responded with a foul-mouthed tirade: "you's (sic) are all f***ing c**ts''.

He was then cautioned by police that he would have to cooperate.

Foyster ignored the instruction and defiantly repeated the same outburst of foul language.

The defendant admitted he was inebriated, citing immoderate consumption of alcohol for his behaviour.

Magistrate Russell Warfield commented alcohol-related offences were becoming a worrying trend in society today.

A $400 fine was imposed on the defendant, with no criminal conviction recorded.
