A MAN has declared he was in the "wrong place, at the wrong time, with the wrong sergeant" after police arrested him for getting involved in a fight he had nothing to do with.
Police were trying to pacify a disturbance on Brisbane St on March 31 when Lee Greenhill, 51, got involved.
Heavily intoxicated, Greenhill approached officers and the people they were questioning and started abusing and arguing with police.
He was cautioned to move away but Greenhill kept arguing, pulled out his mobile phone and thrust it at police, before he was eventually arrested and taken to the watch house.
Greenhill was warned at Ipswich Magistrates Court it was best to mind his own business and not get involved.
He pleaded guilty yesterday to obstructing police and was fined $200.
