A MAN who let off a fire extinguisher while intoxicated at a Mandurah club pleaded guilty at Mandurah Magistrates Court on Tuesday .

Local footballer Lachlan Steven Boogaard-Mitchell pleaded guilty to one count of disorderly behaviour in public.

On Saturday, October 28, the 18-year-old let off a fire extinguisher when intoxicated at Norma Jean’s.

Defence for the man said he knew he should not have picked up the extinguisher.

Magistrate Anne Longden said Boogaard-Mitchell “thought it was fun at the time” but it was “not so fun now you’re in court”.

Defence said he had aspirations to play in the AFL and requested a spent conviction.

Magistrate Longden said he pleaded guilty at the earliest opportunity, had no prior record and had good prospects ahead of him.

Based on these matters, she fined him $500 and granted him a spent conviction order.
