The DJ who lived out every progressive Australian’s fantasy and nutted Tony Abbott is now facing 10 years behind bars after his charges were upgraded.
Astro Labe was hit with a common assault charge for headbutting the former PM on the streets of Hobart last month, but as ABC reports, the offence has now been amended to “causing harm to a Commonwealth public official” which carries a much heftier jail sentence.
Fronting Hobart Magistrates Court today, the North Hobart DJ did not entered a plea and had his bail continued.
Despite Abbott’s allegations that he copped the Glasgow kiss from Labe for his views on same-sex marriage, the DJ recently fronted the media to assure Australians that he attacked the former liberal leader solely for the crime of being Tony Abbott, whom he describes as a “f*cking worm” and an “evil c*nt”.
“It was nothing really remotely to do with [SSM],” Labe explained. “It’s just about Tony Abbott, the fucking worm that he is. All it was is I saw Tony Abbott and I’d had half a skinful and I wanted to nut the c*nt.”
10-years behind bars for a fat lip does seems a bit excessive, considering plenty of Aussie crims have been handed less than that for crimes like attempted murder and manslaughter.
We’ll bring you more on this story as it develops.
