■ A MAN who threatened to kill police was charged after a two-hour negotiation with officers at a Murwillumbah motel. Tweed Byron Police District officers responded to reports an 18-year-old Murwillumbah man was allegedly yelling out that he was going to kill someone while he was at the motel on Saturday night. Once police arrived at the motel, the man became aggressive, locked himself in a room and allegedly threatened to kill police. Officers negotiated with the man for two hours. He was eventually arrested, with police using capsicum spray during the arrest. Police will allege the man was in possession of a metal pole and samurai sword. The man was charged with intimidation, malicious damage, armed with intent to commit an indictable offence, assault police and use weapon to avoid arrest. The man was refused bail and was due to appear before Tweed Heads Local Court on October 7.
