Man in court for punching sports club manager
A 46-year-old man has pleaded guilty to punching a senior manager of the South Mackay Leagues Club in the face.
The Mackay Magistrates Court was told today that on April 27, Travis Leslie Gaylard was asked to leave the Milton Street club for giving unwanted attention to a female patron.
Gaylard was then reported to have punched the manager twice in the face before jumping on and damaging sign outside the club.
The Court was told that five hours later, at 11:29pm, Gaylard was arrested at Harrup Park Country Club for refusing a breath test.
After driving for some time at Harrup Park, this prompted the magistrate Athelo Kenny to enquire about possible restitution.
Magistrate Kenny remanded Gaylard to reappear before the Court, for sentencing, next Monday, on the strict condition that he must not drink any alcohol over the coming week while on bail.
