A man has asked to be jailed for three months instead of following a two-year ban on drinking ordered by a court.
Milo Manu Felix Wild, 22 asked for a jail term because he was depressed that he had to stay at home rather than socialising with friends in pubs and clubs, News.com.au reported.
Magistrate John ONeill said that the move was extraordinary and that Wild thought that his life was not worth living without alcohol.
Wild had been banned from drinking alcohol following his indecent manner on Anzac Day last year when he pushed over four port-a-loos, exposed himself and threw his own urine at rangers at Litchfield National Park.
He was sentenced on November 23 to three months’ jail.
