An Australian tradesman who allegedly fly-kicked a motorcyclist off his bike after drinking 30 vodka shots in Bali has pleaded to his judge for a lenient sentence.
Nicholas Carr has no memory of his alleged drunken rampage through Bali in August, where he was captured on video allegedly kicking a motorcyclist off his bike and jumping on to a moving car.
The 26-year-old is also accused of smashing two shop windows and breaking into a home and assaulting the owner, and is facing two years and eight months in prison.
The Adelaide apprentice builder appeared in Denpasar District Court on Monday afternoon and read a prepared statement to the courtroom.

‘As I stand here before you all today full of sorrow and regret I would like to reiterate my deepest and warmest apologies to the victim, his family and anyone affected by my abnormal behaviour,’ Carr said, as reported by 7News.
Carr met with the man who he allegedly assaulted, Wayan Wirawan, with the pair signing a peace agreement after the incident.
Mr Wirawan was paid $4,500 by Carr to fix his damaged motorcycle, compensate him for time off work, and pay for new glasses.
The pair hugged after appearing in court last week.

Carr retained that his actions on the night in question were out of character, and hoped that the judge would see his remorse
‘All I have as a memory are the scars on my body and most significantly my mind,’ Carr said. ‘Indeed I will be mentally scarred for the rest of my life.’
‘I truly hope that you are able to see the real me as I stand before you today. Thank you.’
Prosecutors requested that Carr be imprisoned for four months as his actions caused unrest in the Balinese community.
Carr will appear in court again on November 5.
