Casino man threatens to kill Lismore security guards

A 22-year-old Casino man has been released on bail despite assaulting two security guards and threatening to kill them at a Lismore pub on Sunday
(November 12).

Police allege that the man reacted after being asked to leave the pub.

They say he grabbed hold of a handrail and made threats to kill the guards.

When he was ejected the man continued to try to get back inside.

He punched one of the security guard in the face, causing a cheek fracture. He then punched a second security guard in the face before fleeing the scene.

Police arrested the man in Browns car park.

During a search he was found to be in possession of cocaine.

He has been charged with two counts of assault occasioning actual bodily harm, possessing a prohibited drug and failing to leave licenced premises when required.

He was released on conditional bail and will appear in Lismore Local Court in January.
