Man on cycle swore at police

A Warwick man who admitted cursing at police picked up a fine when he appeared in Magistrates' Court.

Paul Edness, 51, of Tribe Road One, told police “f**k off, white boys” after cycling past them on March 25.

The officers were insulted by Edness on Elliott Street and Court Street, while on patrol in an unmarked car.

Stopped for the offence, Edness denied swearing at police and said he had been having a conversation on his phone. He was arrested after his phone showed otherwise, and taken to Hamilton Police Station.

Edness told Senior Magistrate Archibald Warner the police account was “blatant lies”, and said police had been following him.

Mr Warner fined him $1,000, to be paid by April 25.
