Per Forbes, Packer has an estimated net worth of $6.3 billion dollars; last year’s Nine Network prospectus also confirmed Gyngell’s status as the highest paid media executive in the country, with a remuneration package worth around $10 million a year.
Rebellious subjects and enemies to peace James Packer and David Gyngell, whose civil brawl of Sunday last has thrice now disturb’d the quiet of our streets, have both been issued with criminal infringement notices for offensive behaviour following a two day police investigation into Bondi’s now infamous Battle of the Bulge.
The infringement notice for offensive behaviour carries with it a $500 fine and no recorded conviction if the penalty remains uncontested in court. Should either party wish to press the matter further because dealing with the State Debt Recovery Office website is a nightmare, they can expect their day in court and a potential maximum sentencing of three months in a Big House incomparably smaller than their own.
Per our old friend Basic Arithmetic, James Packer receiving a $500 fine when he has an estimated worth of $6,300,000,000 is equivalent to the average Australian with a $74,724 salary receiving a fine of approximately fuck all.
