Brooks, who was in conditional release at the time of the attack, pleaded guilty on Thursday of committing personal injury – but was sentenced to three months in prison.
However, his destroyed victim said out of court: & # 39; I have a life sentence & # 39 ;.
Southport District Court heard the attack happened at 1 am on April 2 last year, the Gold Coast Bulletin.
Mr. Knappen waited for a taxi with some friends outside of a 7-11 when Brooks and his friends approached.
An argument broke out between the two groups before Knappen waved a window cleaner at them and shouted at them to leave.
Brooks then knocked him to the ground and fell to the floor, the court heard.

& # 39; The attack continued on the ground and left it in a state that dominated very much & # 39 ;, chancellor Matt Hynes said.
Knappen suffered four skull wounds and cuts in the face. He was hospitalized for four days and is still recovering.
At the time of the attack, Brooks was on conditional release after serving nine months behind bars for drug trafficking, the court heard.
The criminal also threatened to beat a coward a magistrate, the public prosecutor said.
