Charges breach bond
A FIGHT at a Lawrence Street address on June 28 caused enough of a disturbance to require police intervention, Gympie Magistrates Court heard this week.
While officers were there to break it up, one of the men involved, Nathan John Lyne, pushed past them and was arrested for obstructing police.
Officers then noticed the smell of burning cannabis coming from his home.
Lyne, 27, was charged with possession of a utensil that had been used to smoke a dangerous drug when police found the utensil under the kitchen sink and for assaulting or obstructing police.
Both charges breached a $300 good behaviour bond which had placed on him for possession of dangerous drugs and a utensil.
Magistrate Maxine Baldwin forfeited the bond and fined Lyne $200 for the original offences. He was placed on another bond to be of good behaviour, this time for six months and with a recognisance of $700.
