Details of the racist roadside dispute with the man have been revealed

A judge has criticized a Queensland man’s racist road rage who told police he became a bit “unruly” after assaulting a man and then crashing his car, saying there was “no excuse” for the offence.

Are you in trouble with the law? Or have you suddenly found yourself on the other side of the thin blue line? Whether you’re guilty or not, here’s what to expect when you face criminal proceedings.

In January, Count Conrad Wild Alice was driving when a man overtook him, sparking a short-lived road dispute, police prosecutor Sergeant Andrew Grafton told Warwick District Court on 11 September.

The diesel mechanic caught up with the man at a stop sign and was “annoyed” with the man, before getting out of his car and starting yelling and banging on the man’s driver’s side door “vigorously.”

Moments later, at another stoplight, the court was told that Alliss arrested the man again, got into his car, shouted in his direction before opening the man’s door, punching him and driving off.

The two cars started driving off and at 6.10pm, police arrived at the scene and observed a Mazda 3 – later identified as the victim’s car – on the pavement, which had sustained extensive damage.

Count Conrad Wild Alice pleaded guilty to charges of dangerous driving, assault and possession of explosives at Warwick Magistrates’ Court on 11 September.

Alice’s car, a Sprinter van, was parked on the side of the road. The court was told that police spoke to Alice at the scene, and he told officers he was in the inside lane, signaled to change lanes and collided with the man next to him.

Allis told police he was feeling “so brutal” and called the man a “bad racist remark” for being “stupid black”.

Dashcam footage of the incident revealed that Allis changed lanes directly into the man’s car, causing “extensive damage” to the car as well as damaging a street sign.

The man was treated at the scene by emergency services.

On May 3, a police warrant executed at Alice’s home revealed that he was in possession of ammunition and powder consisting of two powder bottles, two boxes of .22 ammunition, and two shotgun shells.

Defense attorney Troy Krahnbring called the conduct “bad and inappropriate” and noted that his client realized too late “that there was never going to be a positive outcome.”

Mr Krahnbring also told the court that Alice suffered from lack of sleep, nightmares and post-traumatic stress disorder due to being a first responder to an incident in South Australia eight months ago.

Alles pleaded guilty to one count of common assault, dangerous operation of a vehicle and possession of explosives.

Judge Virginia Sturges said Alice’s offending was “deeply concerning” and noted the mechanic had a history of weapons-related offences, including weapons possession, willful damage and unregistered firearms.

Ms Sturgess told the man: “You have a bad traffic history and have had difficulty keeping your driving licence.”

“There is an underlying anger issue here, but there is no excuse – getting angry at the driver is no excuse for it.”

Alice was fined $1,500 for all three charges, and lost three penalty points for the dangerous driving charge.

The items seized by the police were confiscated.

No convictions were recorded.
