Man arrested over fishburger scuffle
Wire Services |
"Plant operator Shaun Patrick Farrell, 40, arrived in court ready to plead guilty to a charge of assault, his lawyer Gary Strachan said. But he baulked at the charge describing the assault being 'with an offensive weapon, namely battered fish.' ... The case involved a fish burger bought at a Berrimah roadhouse on Tuesday that Mr Farrell apparently didn't like. 'A man holds up a piece of fish and throws it at someone and a fish fillet is an offensive weapon?' Mr Loadman asked... Dubbed the 'battered fish case' by police and lawyers, the lawyers were quick to suggest headlines for this story. Brian Cassells suggested that the fish was the victim, possibly having been 'a-salted.'"
