Muay Thai fighter told police to cuff him in drunk outburst

A SELF-proclaimed violent Muay Thai fighter escaped conviction in Gladstone Magistrates Court after he pleaded guilty to one charge of committing public nuisance.

Jesse Lee Ansley had been ejected from a private party in the early hours of January 9 due to his poor behaviour, when police happened upon him on Glenlyon Rd at 1.25am.

He appeared in Gladstone Magistrates Court on Tuesday, where the court heard the events of the night in question.

Police prosecutors told how Ansley had begun to shout at officers, telling them he was violent and that they should arrest him, as he had done Muay Thai for three years.

He then repeeated his requests for attending officers to "cuff him".

Ansley told the court he had been extremely affected by alcohol on the night, and woke up naked in the watch house with no recollection of the incident.

Magistrate Russell Warfield exercised his discretion in not recording a conviction against Ansley, but fined him $450 for the offence.
