Police sent a callout on their Facebook page yesterday to a ‘Good Samaritan’ who intervened in an alleged domestic dispute on the corner of Tamarind Drive and Tintenbar Road on Tuesday.
Around 5.45pm, after noticing a man and woman physically fighting, the gentleman stopped his car and went to the aid of the woman before phoning police for assistance.
Police arrived and allege the woman was crying and bleeding from the lip. The 36-year-old Byron Bay man was arrested and taken to Ballina Police Station.
Police allege the man was intoxicated and acting aggressively, punching the cell door and urinating all over the cell.
The man was charged with Malicious Damage and Assault occasioning actual bodily harm (DV).
This man not only went to the aid of the woman, he phoned police and also helped direct traffic around the couple’s car, which had been abandoned in the middle of the road.
