A 23-YEAR-old man has been fined $1000 after he was caught train surfing between Glendalough and Leederville stations last month.
The man entered a guilty plea in the Perth Magistrate’s Court today, to one count of trespass.
He was filmed clinging to the back of a north-bound train on the Joondalup line on September 23.
He was caught by transit officers at Stirling station a short time later.
The Magistrate said the man had engaged in “high risk-taking behaviour” and ordered him to pay $1000 and $190.85 in court costs.
The maximum possible penalty for a charge of trespass is a $12,000 fine and 12 months’ imprisonment.
