Police drop cough count


TOOWOOMBA police have dropped a charge of serious assault against a woman who police claimed had deliberate­ly coughed on a watch house officer.

Alice Margaret Hartill, 31, was not required to be in Toowoomba Magistrate­s Court on Thursday when police prosecutor Cameron Francis told the court police would not be offering any evidence in relation to the case.

Magistrate Graham Lee therefore dismissed the case.
