A Sunshine Coast man has been sentenced to six months probation after throwing ‘tantrums’ in a prison cell.

O’Brien had refused to answer police when they arrived at their Sunrise Beach property before violently resisting arrest.

The incident occurred on September 21 when O’Brien’s ‘anti-police’ mother called for emergency services to attend their home on Tingira Crescent.

Officers were called over a domestic violence incident but after arriving the mother reportedly told them that she had actually wanted paramedics instead, according to News Corp.

Police asked O’Brien if he was armed inside the property after they saw a smashed mirror and knife, but the man refused to answer.

Officers then attempted to arrest O’Brien, with a Queensland Police spokesperson saying he was ‘uncooperative.

The 23-year-old later described as a ‘general nuisance’ during his time in lock-up and was charged with obstructing police.

He plead guilty in Maroochydore Magistrates Court Thursday and was said to have anger issues.

O’Brien was later sentenced by Magistrate Ron Madsen, who gave him six months probation but no recorded conviction.
