Host of rager lands behind bars after flying into a rage

A HOMECOMING party to celebrate his son's release from jail ended with a Warwick man finding himself behind bars.

Police officers attended a Frank Ave residence on the evening of September 13 in relation to Darren Armstrong causing a disturbance.

The 42-year-old's partner told police a drunken Armstrong refused her requests to leave the property.

Officers then spoke with Armstrong's son and subsequently arrested him, causing his father to fly into a rage.

Armstrong swore at police and berated them for taking his son, as he had just been released from custody.

Police prosector Steve de Lissa said all of Armstrong's criminal history involved similar offending and he had been in court for public nuisance in May.

Defence counsel for Armstrong last week told the Warwick Magistrates Court that his client had not been violent but simply "burred up" following his son's arrest.

He was ordered to complete 25 hours community service.
