No ‘bullsh*t’ as busted driver is led from court

REPEAT offender Adrian Jeffrey McMillan stays in jail after he was refused bail by a Gladstone magistrate for his fourth disqualified driving offence.

McMillan, 22, yelled "this is fu**ing bullsh*t" as he was led from the dock by police officers inside the courtroom at Gladstone Magistrates Court.

McMillan appeared in custody charged with driving when disqualified by a court order, possession of dangerous drugs - methylamphetamine (ice), possession of drug utensils, and possession of property suspected of being used in a drug offence.

Police prosecutor Nina Sulzer opposed his bail application, saying there was a risk that the disqualified driver would commit more offences if given conditional freedom, particularly drug offences.

She said it was his fourth driving when disqualified charge in five years.

She said McMillan had prior offences where he had received suspended jail sentences, and his two-page criminal history put before magistrate Jason Schubert was "unflattering".

"It is alleged (by police) he was in possession of the drug ice, methylamphetamine, and it would appear to be a major possession," Ms Sulzer said.

Mr Schubert, in refusing the bail application, said it was McMillan's fourth drive when disqualified offence, he had received a four-month suspended jail sentence last year, and had three fail to appear offences on his criminal record.

The case was adjourned to late November.
