Tourist's night got out of hand

A TOURIST enjoyed her time in Ipswich a bit too much before she was arrested.

Cerice Selkirk was drinking with a large group of people at Redbank Plains on October 22 when police drove past and saw a female attempting to urinate.

As police approached they saw a woman quickly stand up and pull her skirt back down.

Police warned the group to keep their behaviour under control but Selkirk became hostile.

The 20-year-old was eventually arrested but her aggressive behaviour continued and she began thrashing around violently.

She kept repeating she wasn't the one who had been urinating and police tried to explain she was under arrest for being drunk in public and obstructing police.

Defence lawyer Yasser Khan told Ipswich Magistrates Court his client was upset because she hadn't been the one urinating.

"But she significantly overreacted," Mr Khan said.

"Once in the watch house and sobered up she calmed down."

Selkirk, who returns to New Zealand at the end of November, was released on a $400, two month good behaviour bond.

No conviction was recorded.
