A MAN who was asked to leave the Barkly Hotel “about 20 times” after causing a disturbance on the dance floor was fined $330 in the Mount Isa Magistrates Court yesterday.
Aaron Victor Jacob, 21, refused to leave the Barkly Hotel and pleaded guilty to obstructing a police officer and failing to leave a premises.
Police prosecutor Sergeant Vaughan Cooper told the court on August 11 at 2.30am police were called to the Barkly Hotel.
Sergeant Cooper said security staff told police they had asked Jacob to leave the premises about “20 times” after he caused a disturbance on the dance floor.
He said police also asked Jacob to leave the hotel.
Sergeant Cooper said when Jacob refused to leave the premises police placed him under arrest and walked him to their car.
He said Jacob used his legs to push on the sides of the car doors so he couldn’t be placed in the police vehicle.
Jacob had no prior history, he said.
Magistrate Richard Lehmann fined Jacob without recording a conviction.
