Women's public urination caught on Toowoomba CCTV
AT LEAST 20 people out celebrating the New Year in the Toowoomba CBD woke up to a reminder they broke the law while welcoming 2018.
While the majority of revellers at the city's licensed venues behaved themselves and managed to party within the letter of the law, others didn't and were given fines or banning orders.
An increased number of police were deployed to the Safe Night Precinct in the CBD on New Year's Eve for crowd control and patron safety.
Twenty people were fined between the early hours of December 31 and this morning.
Among them were two 19-year-old women fined for public urination on Station Street near Margaret Street about 3.45am on New Year's Eve.
The pair's antics were also recorded on the City Safe camera network, police said.
Two police-issued banning orders were handed out in relation to separate offenders.
A woman, 19, was banned from the CBD after she was first fined for public nuisance involving violence on Victoria Street about 3.30am on December 31.
A man, 39, was handed an infringement notice for disorderly behaviour on Margaret Street at 1.50am on January 1 and was given a CBD banning order.
A man, 25, was fined for swearing at police patrolling outside The Cube hotel at the corner of Margaret and Neil Streets at 10.10pm before a spate of fines were handed out to revellers.
Two men aged 20 and 21 were fined in Bell Street about 11.10pm on December 31, while another man, 21, was fined for the same offence on Neil Street.
Five minutes later at 11.35pm a woman, 21, was fined before a man, 22, who had been swearing at security staff at The Spotted Cow on Russell Street was handed a fine for disorderly behaviour.
Among those fined on the first day of the year were women aged 45 and 20, and two men aged 56 and 19.
Four men aged 56, 22, 42 and 23, were also fined for public urination.
A man 20, will front the Toowoomba Magistrates Court on January 23 over an alleged assault of another man inside the Cube Hotel about 2am on December 30.
