Compensation for hospital door
He went to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital earlier this month to visit his child but ended up leaving with an injured hand and in police custody.
Dario Romario Denny of Gays, St Peter, damaged a door at the hospital and as a result, had to fork out $400. Of that $250 must be paid in costs to the court and $150 in compensation to the hospital.
The 20-year-old was visiting his baby at the hospital on February 4 when he left the ward to go outside and speak with his mother.
Security refused to let him back in, telling him that he would have to return the following day at 6 a.m.
Denny became agitated and punched a French door, breaking a pane of glass and injuring his arm in the process.
He was treated and then taken away by police.
The young father, who has no criminal record, was granted bail when he appeared in court two days later.
When he returned today, Acting Magistrate Alliston Seale ordered him to pay the money and reprimanded and discharged him.
