Cops found woman on table after noise complaints

A BOYNE Island woman has pleaded guilty to two counts of assaulting or obstructing a police officer.

Kellie Anne Maree Northfield faced her punishment in Gladstone Magistrates Court last week after an incident at 3.50am on April 1.

The court heard Northfield had appeared heavily intoxicated at her Boyne Island home when police attended after receiving six separate noise complaints.

Upon arrival, officers saw Northfield standing on top of a table.

A man was trying to coax her down.

A large number of alcohol cans could be seen scattered around the scene.

As one of the policemen began to issue Northfield with a ticket, she grabbed the officer's arm, preventing him from writing the ticket.

Duty lawyer Sharon Kang told Magistrate Penelope Hay her client had been intoxicated at the time of the April 1 offence.

She asked for no conviction to be recorded.

Magistrate Hay agreed not to record a conviction against Northfield.

She fined Northfield a total of $500 for both offences.
