Sunday Territorian - - NEWS -

A MEL­BOURNE man is in cus­tody for al­legedly threat­en­ing his fam­ily af­ter he be­came en­raged be­cause he couldn’t find his beer, a court has heard. The man, who can’t be named for le­gal rea­sons, ap­peared be­fore Mel­bourne Mag­is­trates’ Court yes­ter­day af­ter he was ar­rested at a home.

“He did not find the beer and went up­stairs to ask his sis­ter, nephew and mother,” Con­sta­ble Matthew Clif­ford told the court.

“The ac­cused be­came en­raged and ver­bally abused his fam­ily.”

The man had ar­ranged for a friend to de­liver the beer at his mother’s home on Fri­day.

But his fam­ily had di­verted the beer to an­other ad­dress out of con­cern about his al­co­hol con­sump­tion.
