Teen placed on probation

MEATWORKER Leighton Mitchell Williamson, 18, was warned by police to behave in a reasonable manner when they spoke to him at McDonalds at about midnight on March 7.

Gympie Magistrates Court heard that he ignored the warning and had to be dealt with by the security guard, becoming abusive towards other customers and trying to get back into the restaurant.

The court heard Williamson had removed the “slippery when wet” sign outside the store and pretended to fall over, telling staff he was going to sue them.

He was told to sit down, but when he wouldn’t behave, the security guard ushered him out to the car park.

When police arrived they saw Williamson struggling with the security guard and he was charged with committing a public nuisance and taken home to his mother.

Williamson, of Little Channon Street, was placed on probation for six months with no conviction recorded.
