Man caught with pants down
A HERVEY Bay man who passed out in the middle of a road with his pants around his ankles has this week fronted court to plead guilty to a charge of public nuisance.
The Hervey Bay Magistrates Court heard police arrested Anthony Francis Dorney on January 16 after a concerned member of the public spotted him unconscious on a road near the Hervey Bay Airport.
Police prosecutor Jeanette Grigoris said he appeared intoxicated and was talking “gibberish” when approached by officers.
A red-faced Dorney told the court he had attended a party and had no recollection of his actions.
He assured Magistrate Tom Killeen that the offending was not his usual behaviour.
Mr Killeen spared him a conviction and fined him $100.
