CBD punch-up is man's final brawl before prison
A MAGISTRATE told a Gladstone man to wake up to himself when he appeared in court for fighting in the CBD.
Police were called to a punch-up on Goondoon St about 12.25am on June 16.
Billy James Parnaby was identified as being involved in the brawl.
When police tracked him down he was wearing a torn, blood-stained shirt and had a superficial wound on his face.
The 21-year-old pleaded guilty to public nuisance in Gladstone Magistrates court on Tuesday.
The court heard he had a history of public nuisance but Parnaby claimed he was just having a bad night.
Magistrate Russell Warfield said if he troubled the courts again he would be sent to prison.
He was fined $1000 with a conviction recorded.
