Public nuisance on Monkland St

A GYMPIE man who started swearing at police as they drove past him and a group of friends faced court over what happened next.

Gympie Magistrates Court heard Daniel Anthony Colin Wakelin, 21, caught police attention when he yelled and swore at police on Monkland St.

When police told him to stop he ran from them. When one officer tried to grab a hold of Wakelin's arm he pushed them away.

He pleaded guilty to assaulting and obstructing police and to causing a public nuisance. He also pleaded guilty to two charges of breaching bail. He was ordered to serve 50 hours community service.
