A woman has been charged following a glassing of a man in a Ballina club in the early hours of Sunday morning.

About 12.30am (Sunday 23 February), a 39-year-old man was at a club on Cherry Street when an argument broke out between him and a 47-year-old woman.

The woman allegedly struck the man with a schooner glass, hitting the side of his face.

Security staff detained the woman at the scene until police from Richmond Local Area Command arrived.

As officers attempted to arrest the woman, she allegedly became aggressive by thrashing around and kicking police.

She was taken to Ballina Police Station and charged with assault occasioning actual bodily harm, two counts of assault police, and two counts of resisting arrest.

The woman was refused bail to appear at Lismore Bail Court later today (Sunday 23 February).

The man sustained a small laceration to his face but did not require medical treatment.

  1. No doubt there will be an OHNS that beer can only be served in paper cups. He did not get hurt, so what, she was a bit cranky with him maybe well deserved. Could n’t they just kick them out until they had cooled down a bit? What a non issue for a head line!
