Free on parole after rifle threat

A MARIAN man who threatened to blow a man's head off with a rifle in a road rage incident has been released from prison on parole.

Reece Aaron Markus Hallam, 26, pleaded guilty to going armed to cause fear, unlawful possession of a semi-auto .22 rifle, possessing unauthorised ammunition and driving drunk.

The charges arose out of an incident at Hampden on July 16, the court was told during a part-heard sentence on September 26.

In Mackay Magistrates Court on Tuesday, Magistrate John Aberdeen jailed Hallam for 10 months with immediate parole, placed him on probation for 15 months and disqualified his licence for 10 months.
