Stamping out pub violence

DON'T jump the queue if Brye Daniel Busby is around.

The 21-year-old has been ordered to fork out $4308 after pleading guilty to assaulting another man at Harvey Road Tavern.

The victim was knocked unconscious when Busby punched him in the face on April 13.

His tooth went through his lip and he also suffered a bump to the back of his head from when it hit the floor.

Busby's lawyer Megan Creaser told Gladstone Magistrates Court her client thought a man had jumped the queue for the ATM.

But after watching CCTV footage "he realised this may not be the case".

Police prosector Mick O'Rourke said the attack was "completely unprovoked" and the victim was still suffering from dizzy spells and headaches.

Magistrate Russell Warfield said this sort of behaviour had to be stamped out.

He ordered Busby to pay $4308 damages and sentenced him to four months imprisonment to be wholly suspended for 18 months.
