Leigh-Ann Dryden, the Gold Coast, was arrested after being kicked out of an Elton John concert
A Gold Coast woman is fined after getting so drunk at an Elton John concert that she fell down a hill and attacked a police officer.
Leigh-Ann Dryden, from Labrador on the Gold Coast, was arrested after being ejected from Sirromet Wines in Southeast Queensland on January 18.
The 30-year-old attended the Elton John’s Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour, where she and a friend skipped three bottles of red wine.
A hearing at the Cleveland Magistrates Court on Wednesday heard that Mrs. Dryden was so intoxicated that she was “erratic and violent” at 9 p.m. The Gold Coast Bulletin reported.
The woman, who was in the general entrance area of the hall, had crept into a limited space before being instructed to return to her chair.
But Mrs. Dryden instead ran through the nearby Garden Bar, where she fell and rolled down a hill and crashed into a sign.

She called a police officer a ‘c ** t’ before she grabbed his head, the court heard.
The on-site staff tried to reason with her and offered her the chance to return to the general access area, but she became belligerent and ordered to leave.
It was then that she hit another police officer in the face.
Mrs. Dryden was arrested and detained for two hours until she became sober.
She was forced to undergo anger management and a conflict resolution course.
She appeared in court on Wednesday, where she committed four charges and was fined $ 600.
Mrs Dryden has since apologized via a telephone call to the two officers.
