Policeman cops bite
MOSSMAN police are cracking down on public disturbances and are being assaulted for doing their job while trying to make public areas of Mossman family and tourist-friendly.
On Tuesday at 5.30pm police were called to a disturbance on Foxton Avenue, beside George Davis Park, and a senior constable was assaulted when a woman allegedly bit him on the hand.
The 22-year-old Mossman Gorge woman appeared in court in Cairns yesterday charged with one count each of serious assault police, obstruct police and public nuisance.
In the last fortnight of 2011, five men were given notices to appear in court for consuming liquor in a public place, when they were caught drinking in Foxton Park.
