'Bogan' rips into Western Australia for banning him from every alcohol-selling venue in the state
| Last updated
An Aussie bloke has been banned from every pub, club and bottle shop in Western Australia.
In the video, he can be heard saying: "Hey boys, I've just got a notice saying I'm banned from every alcohol-serving establishment here in WA."
In the video, the notice can be seen that prohibits the 20-year-old from entering any type of WA pub, casino, bottle shop, or bar for a whole year.
In the video, the young stockman can be heard exclaiming 'what the f***' as he reads the notice.
He copped the ban with charges from police for failing to leave a premises and fighting in public after an alleged incident at Perth's Paramount nightclub on September 11, 2022. Ouch.
Ferguson is currently in the midst of taking the ban to court to have his prohibition overturned and spoke to reporters outside of Perth's Central Law Courts on October 14 to explain his mess of a situation.
The self-described 'bogan' adjusted his Akubra cowboy hat before continuing in the clip.
"Normally I have a fun time on the piss. We go out on the property, we shoot s**t, we do burnouts, you know, typical 20-year-old stuff," he said.
He lashed out at WA Police, adding: "I think [the ban is] kind of un-Australian, if I'm honest."
Reporters went on to ask him if he would stay off the booze as a result of the ban.
His reply was simple: "God no."
"I love the Square Bear [Bundaberg Rum] - the old sugarcane champagne - a little too much to give that up."
So how does a Bundy Rum swilling station hand get into such dire position in the first place? Well, punching on with a bouncer after he was called a redneck, that's how.
Yeah, that'll do it.
"[The bouncer] said 'look mate, you can't come in here, not just because of the ID because you're dressed like a f**king redneck'," Ferguson told journalists.
The 20-year-old then claimed the bouncer threw his wallet across the street and asked him what he would do about it.
"The only reasonable thought going through my head was to hit him," he said.
"I threw the first punch. Being honest I did muck up and it was my own mistake. But, I don't think a ban for a year in every pub in WA is fair."
The 20-year-old went on to say he'd be willing to cross state lines to neck a frothy in a pub.
The real downside, though, is what his parents reckon of the whole debacle.
"My mum's disappointed in me, dad's disappointed, oh well, that happens. But, all my mates say I'm a bloody legend and that I need to get (the notice) framed," he said.
Ah well, as long as the lads reckon you're a hero.
Barring notices aren't uncommon in Western Australia.
WA Police told LADbible Australia that a total of143 such notices handed down to people in the Western state this year.
WA Police declined to comment any further on the case.
