Motorbike pursuit

Barred patron

IN the early hours of New Year’s Day a 41-year-old Bodalla man entered a Narooma hotel. Staff recognised the man who had been barred for life from the establishment. They contacted police and asked the man to leave.

The man then kicked a glass door which shattered causing $1200 of damage.

The man has since been charged with malicious damage.

Youth sedated

AN underage Dalmeny boy was detained by police officers at 8.15pm on New Year’s Eve for being extremely intoxicated.

The 16-year-old boy was taken into custody because officers could not locate an adult to take responsibility for him.

The fellow became very abusive at the police station and officers became concerned for the boy’s welfare because of the level of intoxication. Officers called for assistance from paramedics who sedated the boy and took him to hospital in Moruya for observation.

Wallaga accident

ON Friday morning a 35-year-old local man was driving a ute north across Wallaga Lake Bridge when things went awry.

The driver claims he was travelling at 20km/h when he negotiated two men fishing from the bridge. The vehicle lost traction with the road and slid in wet conditions to the wrong side of the road. The driver appears to have then over-corrected the steering and crashed into the bank at the side of the road at the northern end of the bridge.

The vehicle was towed from the scene.
