Men fined £40 for fight­ing in the street

The Oban Times - - News -

A LARGE street brawl was stopped thanks to two po­lice of­fi­cers who were pass­ing the scene in Oban’s Ge­orge Street last Thurs­day morn­ing.

At 2.20am, po­lice no­ticed a large crowd of around 25 peo­ple had gath­ered in the street. Break­ing their way through the crowd, they saw four men, all from Oban, fight­ing.

Po­lice im­me­di­ately dis­persed the crowd and took the four men into cus­tody.

Laws re­cently placed on the statute book meant the men were held in cus­tody be­fore be­ing served with a £40 anti-so­cial be­hav­iour or­der - oth­er­wise known as a fixed penalty no­tice.

Sergeant Alan Moore, from Oban po­lice sta­tion, said: ‘Vi­o­lence will not be tol­er­ated and any­one who is in­volved in anti-so­cial be­hav­iour will be cau­tioned and charged.’
