Appearing before Hornsby Local Court on Thursday Olsen pleaded guilty to high-range drink driving with a court hearing he terrorised staff at Thornleigh McDonald's, on Sydney's leafy north shore, circling the drive-through yelling out abuse, honking his horn before ordering 200 hash browns and paying $230.

When the manager of the store tried to talk to Olsen he yelled at him "You are f***ing gay" and then parked his car and began screaming at cafe window and demanding a refund for 200 fries and Big Macs, which he had not ordered, and screamed "I am going to f**k you all up".

At this point the manager of the store was forced to close the doors and shelter inside the store with staff until police arrived.

Olsen, from Epping, blew 0.175 when submitted to a breath test by police and back at Hornsby Police station continued to be hostile telling officers to "Go and suck a c**k".

The Kiwi national, who has been living in Australian for seven years, went on the early morning Maccas run after he woke up hungry following a big night out with friends at a party and found he nothing in the house to eat.

Olsen drove 15 minutes to the Thornleigh McDonald’s where his outburst forced the staff to call the police.

During his sentencing remarks Magistrate Daniel Reiss described the incident as "quite disturbing" and questioned whether drugs might have been involved.

"It is bizarre for someone who has drunk that amount of alcohol to behave like that in the morning. It sounds like drugs and mental health to me," Magistrate Reiss said.

"Police reported you had bloodshot eyes and your pupils were dilated.

"It was fairly wild and out of control behaviour.

"You are lucky you didn't kill yourself or someone else in the process here."

The court heard Olsen had previously been convicted of a drink-driving charge when he was a teenager in New Zealand and was sentenced to community service.

He was placed on a 12-month good behaviour bond, had his licence suspended for nine months and was fined $1000.
