A 38-year-old DJ and self-described anarchist who allegedly headbutted former Prime Minister Tony Abbott has pleaded guilty in court this morning.

Astro Labe entered a guilty plea on one count of causing harm to a Commonwealth public official in the Hobart Magistrates Court a short time ago.

The court heard that Labe, who by his own admission had had “half a skinful” on the day, followed the former PM for up to 250 metres before confronting him and throwing the headbutt, which left Tony with an extremely minor, barely noticeable injury to his lip.

The incident occurred in September of last year, prompting Abbott to attempt to politicise the incident by claiming it was an example of left violence and intolerance from a pro-same sex marriage campaigner.

Labe, conversely, stringently denied the claims in a sensational interview in which he stated he simply made the spontaneous choice because Abbott’s politics rubbed him the wrong way, to put it lightly.

It was nothing really remotely to do with that. It’s just about Tony Abbott, the fucking worm that he is. All it was is I saw [him] and I’d had half a skinful and I wanted to nut the cunt.

The magistrate questioned Labe’s claims that it was a “spontaneous” act, given that he reportedly followed Abbott for a reasonable distance before confronting him in central Hobart.

The charge of causing harm to a Commonwealth public official carries a maximum penalty of 1o years in prison.

Astro Labe will be sentenced in March.
