Bond and fine for hotel run-in
ASKED to leave a Gympie hotel because of her abusive comments to a patron on September 2, Cindy Chiquita Gram, 44, refused and was arrested and charged for failing to leave licensed premises and for not stating her name to police.
In Gympie Magistrates Court this week, Gram said she found it “laughable” that a police officer, who was fully aware of who she was, charged her for not telling him her name, however the court heard it was required by law.
Gram, of Cliff Jones Road, Curra, was also found with a “minor amount” of cannabis in her handbag when she was searched at the police station and charged for possessing a dangerous drug.
Gram was placed on a bond to be of good behaviour for three months with the condition she attends a drug information session. She was fined $300 for the behavioural offences.
