Man in court after swearing at police at car crash scene

POLICE officers concerned about a serious car crash were hindered by the actions of one man, who was sentenced in Gladstone Magistrates Court on Tuesday.

Kyal Brock Hardy, 19, pleaded guilty in writing to single counts of public nuisance and assaulting or obstructing a police officer, after a crash on the corner of Sun Valley Rd at 9.30pm on March 24.

Police were attending the scene after a car had collided with a power pole when they saw Hardy standing near the vehicle.

After asking Hardy to move away from the scene, he responded with aggression towards the officers.

He swore and said: "I can stand where I want".

As officers went to arrest another man involved in the crash, Hardy again fired off expletives at police.

Hardy was fined a total of $750 for both offences, but no conviction was recorded.
