Arrest after abusing police
A 41-year-old Wanaka man was arrested and charged with disorderly behaviour after he took offence to being stopped at a drinkdrive checkpoint in Wanaka on Thursday night.
Wanaka sub-area commander Senior Sergeant Allan Grindell said the man drove up to the check point at speed and was pulled out of the car and restrained by police after he became abusive and tried to lock the doors of his car.
The man was expected to appear in the Queenstown District Court on June 16.
