A woman has been charged with public nuisance for allegedly stubbing her lit cigarette on a reporter's face outside a Queensland court.
Nine Network journalist Alex Bernhardt reportedly had the lit cigarette shoved in her face by a 23-year-old woman who was at Caboolture Magistrates Court to support Stevee Jane Kennedy, who is charged with the murder of a young father.
"Just had a woman stub her lit cigarette into my face at Caboolture Court ... Charming," Ms Bernhardt tweeted on Monday.

Ms Bernhardt was at the court to report on the appearance of Kennedy after the death of a 26-year-old man who staggered into a service station bleeding from an apparent stab wound early on Sunday morning.
He was rushed to Caboolture Hospital but died a short time later.
Kennedy was charged with his murder on Sunday afternoon.
She was remanded in custody on Monday and will face court again on July 24.
