Police tasered and arrested a man they claim is the Ballina president of the Rebels motorbike club at the Henry Rous Hotel in the early hours of Saturday morning.
According to the police report, officers were conducting a routine business inspection of the Henry Rous Hotel on Moon Street at about 1am on Saturday (June 14), when a patron allegedly became abusive.
Police say they tasered the 33-year-old man after he allegedly became more aggressive and threatened officers. He was arrested at the scene and taken to Ballina Police Station.
The man, who they allege is the president of the Ballina Rebels chapter, has now been charged. Police describe the charges as ‘intimidate police, and fail to quit premises’.
The man was granted strict conditional bail to appear in Ballina Local Court on Thursday July 17.
