A DRUNK Western Australian speedway fan who came to watch the Grand Annual Sprintcar Classic but missed it after being arrested for throwing biscuits at passing cars has been released from a police cell on the condition he goes home.
Daniel Stamenich, 39, pleaded guilty in the Warrnambool Magistrates Court to street offences and was released from custody after spending two days in the Warrnambool cells.
He was placed on a three-month good behaviour bond with the condition he leave Victoria before 6pm Tuesday.
Stamenich was arrested on Saturday after being found passed out at the east end of Koroit Street with an alcohol container under his head as a pillow.
He said he had been drinking during the day and was sleeping it off before planning to attend the speedway.
After being arrested he became hostile and aggressive at the Warrnambool police station, scratched his name into a cell door and ripped up toilet paper.
Police went to Koroit Street after receiving a number of complaints about Stamenich’s behaviour in public.
He was denied entry to a restaurant because he was drunk, screamed abuse at people in Banyan Street and in Otway Road yelled at passing drivers and threw biscuits at their cars.
Defence counsel Belinda Northey said Stamenich had missed the speedway and wanted to return to WA.
Stamenich promised magistrate Michael Coghlan he would leave town as soon as he could find his uncle.
