A man and a woman were charged with drugs offences after police were called to a disturbance at a home in Tweed Heads yesterday afternoon.
Police say the man was chased on foot into knee-deep water in the Tweed River and a short struggle ensued before several police helped restrain him.
He was handcuffed and placed under arrest and later charged with possession of prohibited drug and resisting arrest. The woman was also charged with drug-related offences.
The man was taken to Tweed Heads hospital and treated oyster cuts to his hand.
