Feud between women ends up in Toowoomba court

A YOUNG mother who became involved in a fight with another woman at a Toowoomba nightclub has been ordered to do 70 hours community service.

Police called to the disturbance at the Agenda nightclub about 2.15am, March 22, spoke with a drunk Ashlee Ann-Marrii King, Toowoomba Magistrates Court heard.

The 21-year-old admitted to the incident, telling police she had retaliated after the other woman called her a derogatory name, police prosecutor Senior Constable Alistair Windsor said.

She was taken to the watch house where she was held for four hours, the court heard.

Meanwhile the complainant woman attended the police station to make an assault complaint, telling officers King had grabbed her by the hair, pushed her to the floor and punched her in the mouth, leaving her with a split lip.

Defence solicitor Divina DeLeon told the court her client accepted responsibility for her actions and pleaded guilty to the charge.


There had been ongoing issues between the two women, she said.

Magistrate Bruce Schemioneck said new legislation made it mandatory for community service orders to be imposed on those convicted of such offending.

He ordered King do 70 hours community service but ordered the conviction not be recorded.
