Broken ankle, capsicum spray and fine for playing "chicken"

A TEENAGER who broke his ankle while jumping on to train tracks and resisted police to the point he had to be capsicum sprayed has been fined.

Jessy Ross Shipway, 17, yesterday pleaded guilty at the Ipswich Magistrates Court to obstructing police, creating a public nuisance and illegally being on a railway.

The court heard police were called to the Booval train station following reports of Shipway running along the edge of the train platform and attempting to play "chicken" with other people at the station.

He eventually jumped on to the train line where he fell and hurt his foot and climbed back onto the platform.

When police attempted to arrest him he grabbed a railing and refused to let go until police were forced to strike at his arm.

He eventually tried to flee causing police to spray him with capsicum spray.

The court heard he broke his ankle when he jumped on to the tracks. He was fined $800.
