Man hassles women after being kicked out of hotel

A MATE'S wisdom wasn't enough to save Thomas Reese Mudge from a conviction, after he appeared in Gladstone Magistrates Court on Tuesday.

The court heard Mudge and a friend had been struggling outside the Central Lane Hotel on April 5.

Mudge had been kicked out by security staff, when his mate had tried to drag him home and away from trouble.

Mudge had other ideas, running up Yarroon St towards the Reef Hotel, straight into a group of women.

Police prosecutor Emma Bonnyman told the court Mudge had grabbed one of the women by the arm before accosting another.

He also was extremely unco-operative with police during his arrest.

Mudge, who pleaded guilty to one count of public nuisance, told Magistrate Russell Warfield he "won't make the error again, that's for sure".

He was convicted and fined $500 for the offence.
