The incident occurred in a South Brisbane car park on the night of January 2 and Mr Anderson was placed into an induced coma.

The two were friends and the Brisbane Magistrates Court heard Mr Anderson had fallen from the bonnet of the motor vehicle, as it was being driven by the defendant, resulting in him smashing his head on the concrete.
