A Warilla man has been ordered to perform community service after a brawl at a Marulan fast food outlet in October 2016.

After his car broke down stranding himself and his passengers, Mark James Aldridge became involved in a fight after he took exception to the way two men were looking at him, when he went to get assistance with his broken down car. One of his mates joined in the fight as well.

In Wollongong Local Court on Wednesday, Aldridge pleaded guilty to a charge of affray, was ordered to perform 150 hours of community service and fined $400, the Magistrate saying the attack was entirely unprovoked.
