Punching a security guard lands man with $400 fine

PUNCHING a security guard in the face has cost a Gladstone man $400.

At 2am on May 31, Adrian Roy Holt was drinking with mates at the Central Lane Hotel.

Security asked him to leave after he asked too many inappropriate questions of the dancers.

Holt, 39, was caught on CCTV footage punching the guard and swinging his arms.

He pleaded guilty to drunk and disorderly behaviour in court this week.

Holt was fined $400 with a conviction recorded, and was banned from CBD establishments for six months.
