Public nuisances out on the town to celebrate Easter

IT may be called Good Friday but for several men in Gladstone it turned out to be anything but.

At 12.15am on Good Friday, a 21-year-old man was allegedly acting in a disorderly manner on Goondoon St and was charged by police for public nuisance.

Half an hour later a 38-year-old man was charged with public nuisance on the Dawson Hwy.

At 12.55am a 22-year-old man on Glenlyon St was charged with public nuisance for allegedly using foul language.

Another 38-year-old man was charged with public nuisance on French St at 2.40pm on Thursday.

On Saturday night, a 32-year-old man was pulled over by police on the Dawson Hwy after driving with a disqualified licence.

In the early hours of Easter Sunday, a 20-year-old man was charged with public nuisance outside the Reef Hotel.

An 18-year-old male drink-driver was intercepted on Daniel Dr in New Auckland at 3.20am on Sunday and recorded a blood-alcohol reading of 0.101.

Two men were also charged with public urination.

The eight men will all appear in Gladstone Magistrates Court at a later date.
