Jealousy, a jogger and cans of UDL

A WOMAN who beat up her partner after he looked at a female jogger has been fined $500.

Nadine May Leslie, 24, of Ocean Grove, Warrnambool, pleaded guilty in Warrnambool Magistrates Court this week to assault by kicking.

Police alleged that at 11am on January 26 Leslie and her partner were walking in Warrnambool when the man looked at a passing female jogger.

Leslie abused the man, opened a can of drink and poured it over his head and clothing. She then threw 10 cans of UDL into the street, swung a punch at her partner and scratched his neck. Leslie later told police the reason she had attacked her partner was because he had looked at the jogger and she had not taken her medication for three days.

The court also heard that in November last year Leslie chased a woman around a car in Ocean Grove and kicked her to the thigh.

Magistrate Jonathan Klestadt told Leslie it was no excuse that many people in the community had a problem with the same woman. He said once someone started acting with violence it was impossible to know where it would finish, with many serious assaults being incidents that spiral out of control.
