Man threw mushroom can, broke lolly jar at local store

A MOUNT Larcom man says he is boycotting his friendly local store after police charged him with public nuisance after he threw a can of mushrooms that struck a lolly jar.

Mathew Buswell says he now shops elsewhere.

Appearing before Gladstone Magistrates Court, Buswell, 46, pleaded guilty to the offence at 6pm on June 21.

Prosecutor Nina Sulzer said Buswell claimed to have become frustrated at the time service was taking.

"There was a verbal argument and he threw a can of mushrooms over the counter and it damaged a lolly jar," she said.

Buswell said he "pushed" the can of champignons on the glass counter and had not intended it strike and damage the lolly jar.

Magistrate Jeffrey Clarke said he was impressed by Buswell's court behaviour and accepted his guilty plea.
