Nuisance gets ride to watchhouse
SERIAL offender Francis Malcolm Reginald Wilson found himself back in court and back behind bars after an aggressive attempt to persuade police to drive him home.
The court heard police were called to the corner of Bracker Rd and the New England Hwy and had to "slam on the brakes to avoid hitting the 31-year-old, who was sitting in the middle of the road.
When the officers parked their vehicle, an intoxicated Wilson made his way over to them and attempted to open the front door, and swore at police while instructing them to give him a lift.
When he failed to get the front door open, the Wallangarra man made his way to the prisoner pod section of the car and attempted to open it also, while yelling "Just give me a f****** lift".
Defence counsel for Wilson told the court his client had taken the anxiety drug Xanax on the day and had little recollection of the time before he woke in police custody.
He was sentenced to 11 days in jail for his unruly behaviour, with a parole eligibility date set for December 31.
The day after this incident occurred, Wilson appeared in the same court where he pleaded guilty to three charges of entering a premises and a charge of wilful damage.
All of those offences were committed while Wilson was on bail.
