18-year-old threatened to slit ex’s throat

ONLY days after being put on probation, Hazim Smiley Huskic threatened to slit his ex-girlfriend's throat with a broken bottle.

The 18-year-old was lucky to escape jail time yesterday after pleading guilty to a string of charges in the Rockhampton Magistrates Court.

The court heard on September 20 Huskic attended a football game in Baralaba and went back to a licensed venue after the game to have some drinks.

His ex was also at the game and went back to the venue separately.

Around 10pm they got into an argument that led to Huskic threatening her with the bottle before going outside and picking up a fence paling, which he used to smash the windscreen of her car.

The court heard the defendant then threatened her with the broken paling and yelled, "I'm going to bash you".

The next day police attended his home in Woorabinda to arrest him, but he ran out the back door and jumped over fences to escape. Police managed to restrain him after he ran through a school.

Magistrate Cameron Press sentenced him to three months jail, but suspended it for 18 months. He was also fined $1200 and ordered to pay $705.20 restitution, with a conviction recorded.
