Eamon Sullivan didn’t appear in Adelaide’s Elizabeth magistrates court on Thursday but pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct through his lawyer, Lindy Powell QC.
“It was just a terrible accident,” she said.
Story is he borrowed an elderly man’s scooter for a ride at a party last year, onlookers joking and taking photos, before another party-goer sat on Sullivan’s lap, obscuring his vision.
“This was an offence of misadventure rather than of intention,” Ms Powell said.
“He believed the man on his lap had control of the brake and accelerator.”
