At 1.30am one morning, Craig Moyle 34, was staggering home from a night out on the drink when he noticed the open door of Billy Mac’s Bakery, 40kms southwest of Brisbane.
Feeling a bit peckish he decided to wander inside and asked for a pie. The bakers were not amused and asked him to leave and as he was walking out Mr Moyle decided to grab a pie.
Moments later he came back, threw the pie and said ‘It tastes like s**t’. He then started running around the kitchen sticking his fingers in all the pies and challenged staff to a fight. At this point one of the bakers whacked him over the head with a rolling pin, knocking him unconscious.
Acting Magistrate Brad Skuse asked Moyle if he was under the influence of alcohol at the time of the offence and he said he couldn’t remember anything about the incident and had since apologised to staff at the bakery.
Magistrate Skuse fined Moyle $300 and ordered him to pay $30 restitution for spoilage of the pies.
You just can’t beat a good Aussie meat pie.
