Mother cops $1000 fine for punching Mandurah bar manager

PUNCHING the manager of the Monkey Bar and Lounge to the face cost a woman $1000 when she appeared in Mandurah Magistrates Court today.

Kelly Josephine McMahen pleaded guilty to common assault.

Police prosecutor Tamara Read said McMahen got into a verbal argument with the manager about the payment of musicians on September 22.

Senior Constable Read said McMahen punched the manager to the face with her fist. He did not seek medical attention.

McMahen said she had been under financial stress and got angry and frustrated. She said she was a full-time mother and “muso.”

McMahen said she had apologised to the victim.
