Moree man arrested after refusing to leave pub, assaulting police

A Moree man was arrested after he refused to leave a Moree licensed premise on Saturday night.

At about 11pm on Saturday, April 13, police were called to a Moree hotel after a 30-year-old Moree man failed to leave the premise.

Police will allege the man refused to leave the area and as a result he was arrested and later taken to Moree Police Station.

During the course of the arrest, the man allegedly assaulted police and resisted arrest.

He was charged with excluded person remain in vicinity of licensed premises, assault police and two counts of resist arrest.


The man was granted conditional bail and will appear at Moree Local Court on May 27.

Moree officer-in-charge Inspector Martin Burke said it's a timely reminder for residents to drink responsibly in an effort to avoid situations like this one.

"Police take alcohol-fuelled incidents seriously and implore people and their friends to look after themselves while out to prevent incidents like this from occurring," he said.
