Sefo Joseph Pasi admitted wil- ful damage and breach of bail in court last week. Prosecuting Sergeant Ian McDonald said the owner of the car was socialising with friends at 1am on October 2. An unknown male approached the group from the adjacent skateboard park and bared his buttocks. Mr Mcdonald said Pasi and his relatives drove past the male at the same time and quickly pulled over. The defendant and his relations demanded to know who the person was, who he believed bared their buttocks at him. He was told that the male who bared his buttocks was not connected with their group and had since run off. Pasi soon became enraged, Mr McDonald said. The defendant had lost his self- control and kicked the complain- ant s car. The defendant s foot con- nected with the complainant s car, causing some panel damage. Mr McDonald said Pasi told police he had only kicked the tyre of the vehicle and denied making contact with the body. He further stated that he was furious that someone had exposed their buttocks to him and his relatives. Duty lawyer Carla Leader said Pasi was offended because he had female occupants in the car. He still sticks by what he told police. He believes the bearing of the buttocks was disrespectful, he was angry. Pasi told the judge he saw the man with the group he had approached. Judge Stephen Harrop said Pasi had taken his anger out on the wrong person. This is a silly incident, I accept that you have been offended. It was not this person s vehicle. In any event you do not take the law into your own hands. He was convicted and sentenced to 40 hours of community work. Labour traffic flows Police are urging motorists to take it easy on the roads in and around the region this Labour Weekend. Wellington district Road Polic- ing manager Inspector Peter Baird says police are aiming for a fatality-free holiday weekend on the roads this week. Police will be out in force right throughout the Wellington dis- trict, with the intent to moderate speed and careless driving, through high visibility, and enforcement if needed. Patience is needed by drivers heading out of the Wellington dis- trict next weekend, particularly as traffic will be congested around the Whenua Tapu/Pukerua Bay areas and again south of Waikanae -- likewise on Labour Day when travellers return home. It s important to remember that your holiday starts the moment you leave home, and your journey needs to be factored in to your holiday, so please be pre- pared for some disruption. The official holiday period for Labour Weekend for 2011 will begin at 4pm on Friday and ends at 6am on Tuesday. Mind your head Police are reminding cyclists to wear helmets. They will be actively enforcing the requirement to wear a bicycle helmet during the summer season. The penalty for failing to wear a helmet is an instant fine of $55. They are worn to reduce head injuries and to save lives, so rather than spend $55 on a fine please invest in a helmet instead, Senior Constable Flora Nielsen says.
