Mr Walker turned 56 on January 15 and is understood to have been out celebrating his birthday when the incident occurred.

Two men, aged 19 and 21, were issued banning notices from the Townsville Safe Night Precinct at the weekend.

Police have now banned Mr Walker from the precinct for 10 days and issued all three men with public nuisance infringement notices worth $800 each.

"Look everyone needs to act responsibly. Everyone knows my views on that," she said.
