Drunk took refuge from police in first house he could find

AS A drunken reveller stumbled home from a night out, he "saw the cops and panicked" - and took refuge in the closest house he could find.

To the horror of its at Bellbird Park occupants, Junior Anava Reupena, 26, refused to leave when asked, and started punching the terrified resident.

The owner pushed him back, and Reupena fell through a door and smashed if, before falling down a flight of stairs.

Police came from nearby and Reupena began shouting obscenities at them. He was arrested, taken to hospital for treatment to his injuries, charged and released on bail on November 26.

When facing Ipswich Magistrates Court, Reupena agreed the night out wasn't anything too unusual for him, except he'd seen the cops and panicked.

"I was just walking down the road and panicked when I saw the cops," he said.

Reupena pleaded guilty to public nuisance and trespass and was fined $400.
