Man lashes out on car on Nicklin Way

ILL-FEELING brewed into a violent outburst on a busy Minyama street when George Doulgeris started damaging a man's vehicle at a set of traffic lights.

The 38-year-old personal trainer had in May last year began an on-again, off-again relationship with a gym client who had divorced from her husband, Maroochydore Magistrates Court heard.

Doulgeris' defence lawyer said the woman had continued seeing her ex-husband during that time, which created friction between the two men.

Their ill-feeling toward each other turned violent when the ex-husband pulled up on Nicklin Way at the intersection of Jessica Boulevard on December 17 last year.

Doulgeris was on the footpath, and the woman he had been seeing was in car with her ex-husband.

Police prosecutor Sergeant Rick Pallister said Doulgeris punched driver's side window, kicked a door and punched a mirror.

Doulgeris was fined $500 and a conviction was not recorded.
