Spitting chips: Fight over snack costs men hundreds
A DISPUTE over chips on Melbourne Cup Day led to two men being fined $800 each for public nuisance.
At 7.45pm on Tuesday, November 5, a 25-year-old Bowen man and a 41-year-old Logan man were involved in a fight near McDonald's, in Airlie Beach.
The argument allegedly occurred over McDonald's chips, becoming physical after one man punched the other.
They received $800 on-the-spot fines and were banned from entering the Airlie Beach Safe Night Precinct for 10 days.
