Row ends in court

WHEN Warwick man Darren Armstrong was told by police to leave his home, there was only one thing he wanted for his travels - his red wine cask.

Police were called to the home Armstrong shared with his partner on April 17, after an argument broke out between the two.

The 42-year-old was told he would have to leave the area and he obliged under the condition he could take his cask of wine.

Things soon went sour again when he began to swear and yell at his partner, ignoring multiple police directions to stop.

Officers decided to arrest Armstrong, who flung his arm when being handcuffed, hitting one of the arresting officers in the face and causing him to bite his tongue.

The Warwick Magistrates Court this week heard the officer received a small cut to his tongue as a result.

Armstrong pleaded guilty to assaulting a police officer and public nuisance and was fined $500.

No conviction was recorded against him.
