Supporting independent news or making fat cats fatter?

The recent skirmish between Facebook and the government is hard to miss, even if you rely on Facebook for your news. But what does it all mean?

A man will face court after allegedly attacking people at a house in Goonellabah, including dragging a woman around by the hair and pushing another person through a window.

Police will allege that at 1:30am Monday morning (September 10) the 21-year-old Lismore man went to a Goonellabah home and started arguing with people known to him.

Police say he pushed a woman to the ground and dragged her by the hair around the house.

When another person intervened the accused allegedly pushed them through a window, causing three major lacerations and major bleeding.

Police and ambulance arrived soon after and placed the 21-year-old under arrest.

Police say they had to wrestle him out of the house and again at Lismore Police Station.

He has been charged with assault occasioning actual bodily harm, recklessly inflicting grievous bodily harm and resisting police.

He was refused bail and remained behind bars after appearing in Lismore Local Court.
