A Queensland man will spend the next four months behind bars for stepping on a man’s head during a drunken brawl in Noosa last year.
Jordan Troy Savage, 24, appeared in Maroochydore District Court on Tuesday and pleaded guilty to two charges of assault in connection with the attack and another incident a few weeks earlier.

The court heard Savage stomping on a victim’s head three times, knocking him unconscious with the first blow.
The victim suffered a broken nose and concussion, as well as lacerations from the attack.
Savage attacked two men during drunken brawls with his friends on separate nights in Noosa nearly 12 months ago.
Defense attorney Nathan Turner described his actions as “outbursts of anger.”
Judge Glen Cash disagreed, calling them “serious examples of needless violence in a public place committed by a drunk young man”.
family in tears
Savage was supported in court by a group including his mother and sisters, who wept as the facts were read.
He sat stony-faced in the docks, staring at the ground as the judge condemned his actions.
When deciding on a verdict, Cash considered Savage’s efforts to rehabilitate himself, including seeing a therapist and giving up alcohol since his arrest.
He was sentenced to a principal sentence of fifteen months in prison, which will be suspended after four months.
