Man on 'knife in undies' charge

A MAN allegedly carrying a knife in his underpants was one of four people police had to deal with at one licensed premises at the weekend.

The 20-year-old Warwick man was screaming at the back of the pub when he was approached by police at 11.15pm on Saturday.

A search allegedly uncovered a 10cm pocket knife in the man’s underpants, and he was given a notice to appear for possessing a weapon and for public nuisance.

Three other people, a 26-year-old Warwick man, a 30-year-old Warwick man and a 25-year-old Mt Marshall woman were also given notices to appear and infringements for public nuisance offences.

Additional police had to be called to the scene to help control the people involved.

The next day, an alcohol-fuelled Womina man landed in trouble when he allegedly refused to leave another licensed premises.

Police were called to the pub at 5.30pm Sunday after the duty manager called for assistance in trying to evict the 35-year-old patron.

The man, who police described as intoxicated and slurry, put his wallet on the table and told police to arrest him when they approached him.

After the man refused several requests to leave, police were forced to charge him with failing to leave the premises and obstructing police.

In other weekend crime news, two teenage juveniles were charged with public

nuisance for allegedly driving their scooters through Rose City Shoppingworld and along Palmerin St.

Police caught up with the 15 and 16-year-old Warwick boys at the skate park at Queens Park, where they were charged with public nuisance.
