A Young man threatened to blow up a house with a gas bottle after a physical altercation with his father and damaging a fridge, TV and picture frame.
Richard Sutherland of Watson Street, Young pleaded guilty in Young Local Court on February 16 to common assault, damaging property and intimidation intending to cause fear of physical harm.
He was also convicted of driving with a middle range PCA and never licenced person drive vehicle in a separate incident.
According to police facts tendered in court, the 34-year-old drank a large amount of alcohol between 5pm and 10.30pm on November 2 last year and began arguing with the victim.
Sutherland lost his temper and ran towards the fridge, headbutting it and damaging it.
He fell backwards, landing on the floor and hitting his head on the stove.
The victim tried to retrain him and called emergency services but Sutherland got up and walked into the lounge room, still shouting abuse at the victim.
Sutherland threw his mobile phone at the TV, punched the screen and damaged it.
He also punched a picture frame, causing the glass to fly around the kitchen and lounge room.
The victim tried to restrain him again but Sutherland punched him in the face, bruising his eye.
Sutherland walked outside onto the veranda and attempted to unscrew the barbecue gas bottle, telling the victim he was going to light it and blow up the house.
In a police interview later on, Sutherland admitted to the offences.
He was given a 12 month good behaviour bond.
He was also fined $200 and disqualified from driving for six months after he blew a 0.086 reading at a random breath test site in Queanbeyan on March 28 last year.
