$400 fine for drunken fight with "dwarf" at Maccas

A DRUNKEN, early morning fight in McDonald's has cost a woman $400.

At 4.30am on July 19 Keachelle Renay Menzies Nagle, 28, was at the Limestone St McDonald's in Ipswich.

Police were called after she and a number of others were involved in the fight. When police arrived they found Nagle and three others, two men and another woman, involved in a fight with a security guard trying to stop them.

Nagle was swearing at one man and calling him a "dwarf" and striking him in the head.

The court heard Nagle yelled loudly that he "wasn't much of a man" and claimed her boyfriend would beat him in a fight.

She was arrested by police and complained to them she hadn't done anything wrong, while at the same time continuing to swear at the man and calling him a "dwarf."

She pleaded guilty in the Ipswich Magistrates Court yesterday to creating a public nuisance.

Nagle told the court on the night she was "a bit too drunk" and couldn't remember what started the fight.

She admitted she didn't know the man she was abusing before the night.

She said he had been "rude" to her before the argument began but said she could not remember why the fight had started.

The court heard she had an extensive history, but had not been before the courts in two years.

She was fined $400.
