Teen injured after punching, smashing phone booth
TYE David Thomas came off second best after taking his frustrations out on a public phone booth.
About 9.30pm on March 21, police were conducting patrols along Farnborough Rd, Yeppoon, when they were waved down by a paramedic.
The ambulance officer had seen Thomas, 19, punching and breaking the glass of a phone booth nearby.
Thomas, who was intoxicated at the time, sustained a number of lacerations to his hand.
He told police he was having family issues and apologised for his actions.
In Yeppoon Magistrates Court on July 30, Thomas pleaded guilty to wilful damage.
Magistrate Jeff Clarke placed him on a three-month good behaviour order with a recognisance of $300.
