A 26-year old man who was last year charged with urintating on the leg of a female punter at a Spiderbait gig has copped an $800 fine.
Joel Morrison was convicted of the crime in a Melbourne Court, with the Magistrate referring to his actions as “disgusting”.
Despite originally denying the allegations, the literal piss-taker copped to the charge in the hopes of getting chucked on the court’s diversion program and dodging a criminal record.
But Magistrate Franz Holzer instead doused him with a hot yellow stream of justice.
“I’m going to refuse the application … the matters are frankly disgusting,” Holzer said (via Fairfax Media), putting Morrison on a 12-month good behaviour bond and ordering him to pay $800 to charity.
Holzer was convicted of unzipping and draining the lizard all over the leg of a 33-year-old female punter during the Melbourne leg of Spiderbait’s 25th anniversary tour at 170 Russell.
Spiderbait addressed the incident shortly after the allegations were made, declaring they were “dumbfounded”.
