Jarrod Bradley Foster pleads guilty to assaulting ex-partner with cup of Coke
A Rockingham man has pleaded guilty to throwing a cup of Coke at his ex-partner after an argument between the two.
Jarrod Bradley Foster, 34, appeared before Rockingham Magistrates Court last Wednesday charged with one count of common assault and one count of obstructing officers.
Prosecutor Sergeant Naomi Foster told the court Foster and the victim, who were in a relationship at the time, started arguing about 8pm on August 8.
The court heard Foster threw a drink at the victim, causing it to land on her and leaving her in discomfort.
The victim called police and Foster left before they arrived. He was later arrested by police.
Foster said he threw the cup out of frustration.
“She was all in my face, I was frustrated,” he told police.
Duty lawyer Justin Geoghegan said Foster had since had time to reflect on his actions and acknowledged that it was a “very disrespectful” thing to do to the mother of his children.
Foster was fined $800 and ordered to pay court costs of $137.
He will appear back in court on November 12 for the charge of obstructing officers.
