A violent drunk stopped rail traffic after a vicious bashing of a truckie at a petrol station that could have proved explosive, a court has heard.
A fuel delivery truck driver has been left traumatised, bloodied and permanently scarred following a vicious late-night bashing that could have had explosive consequences.
Maxwell Jade Dunn, 23, of Manly West was supported by family at his Wynnum Magistrates Court appearance on Friday.
Dunn pleaded guilty to a swath of offences.
Most serious among them were charges of assault occasioning bodily harm while adversely affected by intoxicating substance, assault of police officer while adversely affected, interfering with railway, public nuisance, drug possession and more.
A charge of grievous bodily harm was reduced to assault occasioning bodily harm.
The court heard Dunn harmed police, a community member and placed the community at significant risk during multiple violent drunken incidents last year.
On July 16 at around 11.45pm services at Wynnum Central Station had to be suspended for 15 minutes after a grossly intoxicated Dunn caused a disturbance by climbing onto the railway structure.
When police arrived they received reports of Dunn’s bloody chaos committed earlier on the night.
The court heard Dunn had earlier approached a truckie refuelling a Seven-11 service station in Wynnum and kicked at the refuelling equipment within a clearly marked exclusion zone.
When the truck driver warned him of the extreme danger present, Dunne punched the man repeatedly in the face.
Photos tendered to the court showed his injuries which included two cut eyebrows and a broken nose.
According to police, the “traumatised” victim required five stitches, surgery and will carry a permanent scar.
Magistrate Zachary Sarra noted had a spark caught flame while Dunn was kicking the refuelling equipment it could have resulted in large scale destruction.
