'Randomly abusing people while driving won't win you friends'

WHEN Christopher Brendan Mair has a bad day at work it has been the residents of Pine Mountain Rd who cop the brunt of his frustrations.

Mair, 50, pleaded guilty to one count of public nuisance in the Ipswich Magistrates Court yesterday.

The court heard Mair had taken to driving along Pine Mountain Rd after a rough day at work and screaming abuse at random houses.

The resident of one targeted house followed Mair along the road after he swore and screamed abuse at the man's partner.

He reportedly witnessed Mair abuse more people at other houses along the road.

According to the police Mair had been spoken to previously about similar behaviour.

Residents told police it had been occurring for some time.

The court heard Mair yelled the abuse after he had a bad day at work.

Magistrate Virginia Sturgess said the case was one of the strangest she'd heard.

"It's quite a strange offence," she said. "The residents of these houses don't need to be randomly abused by you.

"This is not the sort of behaviour that's going to win you any friends."

Mair, who had no criminal history, was placed on a $400, six-month good behaviour bond. No conviction was recorded.
