Famous Dalby TikTokker throws pub tantrum and abuses police
A TikTok-famous user boasting more than 280,000 followers on the popular social media site has faced court for abusing police and failing to leave a Dalby pub.
Kiarra-Leigh Rose Minogue was charged with committing a public nuisance, obstructing police, and failing to leave a licensed premises in the early hours of December 30, 2020.
Minogue operates under the moniker “@itsamekiki” on TikTok, a video sharing social network used to create short length comedic and dance videos.
She currently has 282,200 followers, and 9.4 million likes on her videos.
The Dalby Magistrates Court heard on Tuesday, January 19 the police received a call about 2.50am from a security guard from a Cunningham St pub about a patron who was refusing to leave a venue.
Police prosecutor sergeant Derek Brady said they arrived several minutes later and spoke to Minogue standing outside the pub, who was telling the security guard to “shut the f--- up”.
Sergeant Brady said officers asked Minogue what was going on, to which she replied the security officer told to her move along because “she didn’t find his rape joke funny” in her words.
The court heard she began to argue with police about being asked to leave due to her friends being inside, and refused to leave when asked to.
Minogue then began to walk away from police, continuing to shout abuse and use offensive language.
Police followed her around the corner of the premises and attempted to talk to her, with Minogue at one stage saying “don’t touch me you c---”, and was subsequently arrested.
Sergeant Brady said her tantrum continued at the watch house, where she refused to leave the police vehicle.
He told the court Minogue had to be physically removed from the car, before being placed in a watch house cell and charged.
Duty lawyer Jessica Hine said the 24-year-old mum had reacted badly to the mixture of her newly prescribed medication and alcohol, which contributed to the incident.
Magistrate Tracy Mossop told Minogue she was sick of hearing the “c” word, and said it was appalling that it came from the mouth of a young woman.
Minogue pleaded guilty and was given one $800 fine for all charges.
A conviction was recorded.
