Al­co­hol-fu­elled vi­o­lence

Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

THE Air­lie Beach main street kept po­lice busy again this week with sev­eral in­stances of al­co­hol-fu­elled vi­o­lence and drunken be­hav­iour re­sult­ing in ar­rests. Of­fi­cer in Charge of the Whit­sun­day Sta­tion Act­ing Se­nior Sergeant Barry Haran said in one in­stance a 35-year-old Proser­pine res­i­dent ap­proached the po­lice van and bashed on the rear. “[He then] be­rated the fe­male con­sta­ble with sex­u­ally ex­plicit abu­sive and threat­en­ing lan­guage,” he said.

The man spent the rest of the evening in the watch house and will ap­pear in court on March 10.
