A WHITSUNDAY skipper who made national news for driving a charter vessel while allegedly drunk and abandoning his passengers on Whitehaven Beach, is now back behind bars after being arrested on a fresh set of charges last week.
Anthony Laurence Boegheim, 50, was brought to Monday's sitting of the Proserpine Magistrate's Court in police custody, charged with three counts of assaulting or obstructing police, one of trespassing and one each of seriously assaulting a police officer and seriously assaulting a person aged 60 or above.
Police will allege that Boegheim, who was found on the property, also assaulted a police officer, by kicking him in the leg and head while being arrested.
Officer in Charge of the Proserpine Police Station, Sergeant Nathan Blain, said due to the thickness of the vegetation where Boegheim was found and his prolonged struggle with the arresting officers, "it took police considerable time to extricate him from the property".
Sgt Blain said Boegheim continued to struggle with police on his arrival at the watch house, where he attempted to spit on another officer.
In court on Monday, Boegheim hopped into the dock on one leg, subsequently ignoring a direction to sit down.
He was represented by duty lawyer Sherrie Meade who made no application for bail.
The charges were adjourned to August 11, with Boegheim to remain in custody until then. He will appear in court via a video link.
Boegheim is already familiar with the prison system having spent time behind bars after he was sentenced for a number of incidents, including the one on the Whitsunday waters, earlier this year.
On March 3, he received a sentence of 24 months imprisonment with a parole release date of June 30, 2014.
