Refusing to pay
A 28-YEAR-OLD overseas tourist was arrested for committing a public nuisance offence after refusing to pay for his order at one of the takeaway food outlets in Airlie Beach. When police took up with the man at 11.10pm on March 13, he was described as heavily affected by alcohol. Later that night a 21-year-old tourist, also from overseas, was given a move-on direction, with which he failed to comply. Both men will appear in court at a later date.
