Irishman convicted after kicking politician for a bet last month in Darwin. AN Irishman who kicked an Australian politician for a bet has been convicted and fined.
Darren Heraty, 24, said he kicked Northern Territory CLP politician
John Elferink - who was holding a press conference about violence - for
a $200 bet. The Darwin Magistrates Court heard Heraty - an Irish
national - was drinking with friends at a bar in the Darwin CBD when
he saw the press conference being set up across the road on August 5. Mr
Heraty's friends said they would pay him $200 if he touched Mr
Elferink, who was appointed Attorney-General after the CLP seized power
in the territory ending 11 years of Labor rule. Magistrate Greg Cavanagh described the assault as a "stupid drunken prank."
He has 28 days to pay the fine.
