Waimate scuffle results in one arrest

SHARE

A brawl involving about 30 people resulted in one arrest outside the Waimate Hotel early on Sunday morning.

Waimate police Sergeant Mike van der Heyden said police were called to the scene at about 2.30am, finding a 30-strong group in a “scuffle” outside.

Mr van der Heyden said no one reported being assaulted and there did not appear to be any serious injuries, but a 19-year-old Waimate man was arrested for disorderly behaviour while police were at the scene and allegedly breaching the liquor ban.
