Gladstone man told to get anger skills

GLADSTONE painter Colin Kennedy, 33, was fined $1000 after he punched a woman in the head and breached a court order.

He was warned by a magistrate that he was still young enough "to learn better skills" to manage his anger or eventually go to jail.

Kennedy was intoxicated at the time but magistrate Penelope Hay said this was no excuse.
