A Katanning man will remain behind bars after pleading guilty to 14 criminal charges. Brett Shane Hayward appeared via video link from Albany Regional Prison at Katanning Magistrates Court on April 5, where he was sentenced over a range of charges, including breaching protective bail conditions, criminal damage or destruction of property, possession of unlawfully obtained property and disorderly behaviour in a police station or lock-up. Police prosecutor David Loverock told the court that about 6.30pm on January 21, Hayward was at Caltex Woolworths in Katanning when he started shouting at a member of the public, telling him “f... off, I’ll kill you all”. He then grabbed one of the fuel bowsers and unsuccessfully tried to discharge petrol. Hayward proceeded to damage the fire extinguisher box at the site, removing the extinguisher before discharging it on Clive Street. On January 2, Hayward had been found by police riding a black and green mountain bike which was found to have been stolen. He also failed to report to police when required to do so on February 10 and March 15. When arrested on the first occasion on February 15, he was found to be in possession of cannabis. After his second arrest, he was at Katanning Police Station at 9.40am on March 18 when he took off his jumper in one of the holding cells and started acting aggressively. Mr Loverock told the court Hayward shouted “f... these c...s, f... the magistrate, f... you” and told officers he would use their guns on them. Hayward has been in custody since March 17 after breaching a suspended imprisonment order related to damage at St Luke’s Family Practice. His defence lawyer told the court he had suffered from a relapse of alcohol and cannabis use. Regarding the Caltex Woolworths incident, she said two people had been standing over him and wanting money, prompting him to take the fire extinguisher for personal protection. She said her client believed he was being picked on by members of the Katanning community who wanted money from him. Hayward could be heard telling the court “I will not be coming back to Katanning”. In her sentencing, Magistrate Dianne Scaddan noted Hayward had been given multiple chances. He was fined $2300 and sentenced to 13 months in prison, backdated to March 17.
