Balga man smashes Geraldton McDonalds window just to get a lift from Cops

In what can only be described as an unbelievable display of selfishness, a man has smashed a window at a Geraldton Maccas in order to get a lift home, say Police.

On Tuesday 25 November 2014 at about 12.30am the man attended Geraldton Police Station seeking a lift home.

A taxi was ordered for him to be collected from the police station.

It's unclear why the man chose not to wait for the taxi, but he left the station prior to the arrival of the taxi, heading to McDonalds Restaurant, Durlacher Street in Geraldton.

Police say the man was sitting out the front of McDonalds drinking from a bottle of Tawny Port that was in his possession. The man used the bottle to strike a lower glass panel causing the glass to break.

Police attended and arrested the man.

Shockingly, Police say the man actually told them he smashed the window in order to get a lift home. 

The 45 year old man from Balga was charged with criminal damage and street drinking. He will appear before Geraldton Magistrates Court on 18 December 2014.
