MAN SENTENCED TO CONDITIONAL RELEASE ORDER AFTER TOILET PAPER DEBACLE

A man accused of assaulting two people over a toilet paper shortage at a Tamworth department store earlier this year has avoided jail

Philp pleaded guilty to two counts of assault, after he hurled tissues at a Big W employee on March 5, before choking a female customer.

He also admitted to assaulting a police officer.

50-year-old Wayne Ashley Philp has been sentenced to a 15 month conditional release order, which means a conviction won’t be recorded.

The court previously heard that Philp has multiple medical conditions, including Autism and difficulty hearing.
