Po­lice chase

Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

WHIT­SUN­DAY Po­lice were forced to give chase when a 28-year-old Ma­roochy­dore man ran from them last week. At 11.45pm on Oc­to­ber 25, po­lice were driv­ing along the Air­lie main street when they saw the man drop his pants and bare his but­tocks at them. The of­fi­cers re­turned on foot but the man de­camped and a chase through laneways and over prop­erty fences en­sued.

Of­fi­cer in Charge of the Whit­sun­day Po­lice Sta­tion, Act­ing Se­nior Sergeant Brad Teys, said the man even­tu­ally turned to con­front po­lice, who pre­sented their Tasars.

The man has been charged with wil­ful dam­age and wil­ful ex­po­sure and will be banned from the Air­lie Safe Night Precinct for three months.
