A GYMPIE man who walked around naked and urinated on the floor and a cupboard of an acquaintance's home was drunk and battling depression, Gympie Magistrates Court heard Monday.
Ziggy James Harrold, 20, of Gympie was asked at 2.30am on July 1 by the victim, the lease holder of the Gympie residence, to dress himself. But he refused.
It was following this request that Harrold urinated on the floor and cupboard.
Earlier that day, at 1am, he broke a court order to be of good behaviour when he got into an argument, grabbed his victim's arm and ran from a house with a knife, threatening to self-harm.
Police were called at 3.40am and found Harrold at the front of a nearby property.
The court heard hee was aggressive and argumentative, continuing to resist arresting officers and kicking one officer in the head.
Harrold would then not get out of the police vehicle back at the Gympie Police Station.
Police had to enter the vehicle to remove him before later placing him in the violent offender's cell.
Harrold's lawyer told the court his client was drunk at the time of the
offence and fighting depression.
Harrold pleaded guilty to two charges of obstructing a police officer, one charge of assaulting a police officer, breaching a court order and a count of wilful damage.
He was given probation for nine months and required to complete the Safe Choices Program.
