Bummer! Man fined for pinching cop

THE strippers at Showbar 140 dress in skimpy costumes to entertain patrons and there's the French maid, the nurse, the cowgirl and the police woman.

But when Shane Osborne pinched the police woman on the bum he was pinching a real life plain clothes constable assigned to nightclub patrols.

So guess what? The police pinched him. What a bummer.

Security officers grabbed him and walked him out after the incident at 12.30am on Saturday, October 29.

Once outside, police took over. He struggled continually and on the footpath was ranting and raving, with people watching, so a second police car had to be called as backup, the Mackay Magistrate's Court heard yesterday.

The 32-year-old carpenter pleaded guilty to four charges including behaving in a disorderly manner on licensed premises. He was fined $1400.
