Public urinator makes return to Airlie Beach

A MAN who was banned from the Safe Night Precinct after urinating outside McDonald’s allegedly broke the police order just three days later.

On September 8, a 28-year-old Gold Coast man was given a 10-day ban from the Safe Night Precinct for urinating in public.

Two men were charged in relation to the same incident when they allegedly assaulted a passer-by who confronted the Gold Coast man for urinating in public.

Three days later about 11pm, a security guard alerted police that the Gold Coast man was trying to enter a licensed premise in the Safe Night Precinct.

He was issued a notice to appear in the Proserpine Magistrates Court.
