HIDING: The long-arm of the law opened the cupboard and found Joshua William Drage hiding.A Telarah man was found hiding in a bedroom cupboard when police executed a warrant for his arrest on Monday.
Joshua William Drage appeared in custody after failing to attend court on June 25 charged with failing to comply, resisting an officer and offensive language.
In his absence Drage, 29, had been fined $100 for failing to comply and $100 for offensive language that he used outside Maitland Probation and Parole on April 13.
Some of the charges had not been dealt with in court on June 25 but were heard at Maitland Local Court yesterday.
The court heard a plain clothes detective had attempted to get past Drage who had blocked the entrance to Probation and Parole.
The detective identified himself and asked Drage, who smelled strongly of wine and was holding a Coke bottle containing wine, to move on.
Other police arrived and Drage was given several warnings to move on but said: “You f——— c—— can’t make me do anything. You c—— wanna bash me, well you can f—- off all of youse. I’m not f——— going anywhere until you c—— f—- off.”
He was arrested and spat and swore as he was escorted to Maitland police station.
Three hours after his release, about 8.45pm, police found Drage drunk and yelling outside the police station. He was granted bail at 6pm that day with strict conditions not to drink alcohol.
When police asked him where he had been drinking Drage said: “Wherever I like you c—— can’t tell me what to do.”
Police used capsicum spray to subdue Drage and he was arrested for breaching bail.
Warrants for remaining charges of resisting police were issued when Drage did not appear in court on June 25. A week later police found him hiding in a cupboard at his mother’s Capper Street home.
In court yesterday Drage pleaded guilty to the remaining charges but was refused bail. The matter was adjourned to Monday.
