Shannon Noll Handed Good Behaviour Bond After Pleading Guilty To Cocaine Possession

Kyle Sandilands reportedly submitted a character reference on Noll's behalf.

Shannon Noll has been handed a one-year good behaviour bond after pleading guilty to cocaine possession in Sydney’s Sutherland Local Court today.

The singer was arrested earlier this month at Caringbah Hotel after a sniffer dog search identified that he was carrying a bag of white powder — later confirmed to be half a gram of cocaine. His lawyer entered a guilty plea in court this morning, which ensured Noll escaped conviction but was given the good behaviour bond.

According to News.com.au, Noll received a number of character references from “farmers”, and — somewhat bizarrely — renowned radio idiot Kyle Sandilands, who called him a “great man“.

Noll made headlines earlier this year after getting into an altercation with an audience member who chucked a beer can at him during a show in regional NSW. Noll responded by calling the man a “dog-arse prick” and a “private school stupid fucking motherfucker” and threatening to “fuck ya missus and ya mum”. Which is…cool.

The singer also ran afoul of police last year after being arrested outside an Adelaide strip club following an altercation with security. He was charged with assault over the incident, but the charge was later dropped.
