Police prosecutor Sergeant Sean Franklin told the court Oglesby had been a guest at the 21st when security had asked him to leave following a disturbance.

Police attended and went to escort Oglesby out, before he turned and began screaming obscenities at officers, according to police.

Oglesby and another then boxed officers into a corner, forcing police to use capsicum spray, before Oglesby was arrested.
