A 44-year-old man has been charged with assault and
threatening language after allegedly head-butting a security
officer, cracking one of the officer's teeth, at the
Heartland Craft Beer Festival in Frankton on Saturday.
Sergeant Steve Watt, of Queenstown, said the man, from the
United Kingdom but living in Clyde, and a 42-year-old woman,
also living in Clyde, were asked to leave the festival by
security aabout 6pm.
Sgt Watt said the pair had allegedly become abusive and the
man threatened to head-butt bar staff.
He was restrained by a security officer but then head-butted
the officer and the woman tried to pull security staff off
her by their neck, Sgt Watt said.
The woman was charged with disorderly behaviour and the man
with assault and threatening language.
