Off-duty, but still the man

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

A foul-mouthed cou­ple have learnt the hard way an off-duty po­lice of­fi­cer still has author­ity and not to dis­turb the rest of an of­fi­cer try­ing to get his beauty sleep. Around 1am last Wed­nes­day an off-duty of­fi­cer was awo­ken by ob­scene lan­guage and swear­ing com­ing from the main street of Moss­man and he at­tended and in­structed the per­sons to move on. The 32-year-old Moss­man man and 22-year-old Moss­man woman pro­ceeded to tell the of­fi­cer he wasn’t in uni­form and couldn’t tell them what to do, so the fol­low­ing morn­ing the on-duty po­lice of­fi­cer is­sued the cou­ple with no­tices to ap­pear for pub­lic nui­sance, go­ing to court on Oc­to­ber 24.
