Truckie allegedly choked while delivering tractor
A GLENGALLAN man accused of choking his nephew who was delivering a tractor to a relative's shed pleaded not guilty to one charge laid against him in Warwick District Court on Monday.
Against a backdrop of family division dating back more than four years, according to Crown prosecutor Noel Needham, Anthony James Willett allegedly choked his nephew, Michael Thomas Willett, who was a truck driver at the time.
Mr Needham said "young Michael" owned a trucking business and was asked to deliver a tractor to his uncle Brian, but needed to access Anthony Willett's property to do so.
When Michael, 29, stepped out of his truck to speak to his uncle Anthony, Mr Needham said, he was accosted immediately and pushed to the ground.
