Man starts fight after tattoo is called 'stupid'

A MAN has been fined after being kicked out of Gladstone Yacht Club then sneaking back in to fight someone who thought his tattoo was "stupid".

Magistrate Shaun Shearer fined James Kaukau $700 and chastised him in the Gladstone Magistrate's Court.

"Why people can't go out for a few drinks, have a good time, then go home, I don't know," the magistrate lamented.
