Police allege a 40-year-old intoxicated man was observed entering his vehicle in the carpark of a licensed venue in Oxide Street and placing the keys in the ignition.

The man was spoken to by two police officers - who were in a marked police vehicle next to him in the carpark.

Police said this attracted the attention of a 31-year-old male who approached the officers and began arguing, resulting in him being placed under arrest.

A scuffle then occurred between the officers and the 40-year-old man resulting in him being arrested and the keys to the vehicle seized. 

Both males were transported to the Broken Hill Police Station where police said they continued to behave in an irrational and aggressive manner.

The 31-year-old was charged with Hinder Police & Assault Police and the 40-year-old was charged with failing move on from a licensed premises and resisting arrest. 

Both men were released on bail.

The incident occurred around 2am on Saturday

 


 

Table, window damaged

A table outside an Oxide Street hotel was removed from its mounting and later stolen while a Sulphide Street store window was also damaged on the weekend, according to police.

Both incidents occurred in the early hours of Sunday morning.

Police said a group of youths removed the table at 2am and the table was then carried off by a second group a short time later.

Police are reviewing electronic evidence and are asking for any witnesses or youths present to contact police. Receiving the table is also considered an offence.

A coin thrown through the front window of the Sulphide Street cafe at 3am is believed to have caused $100 worth of damage.

The business was open at the time and a number of people were present. Police are continuing their investigation.
