Mullumbimby residents found the main street of town closed briefly on Sunday evening as police asked drivers and pedestrians to take an alternate route.
Revellers leaving the Middle Pub were diverted away from Burringbar Street via Stuart Street and police staff and vehicles blocked access to the road between 7.30 and 8pm.
Echonetdaily spoke to the Tweed-Byron LAC this morning and were told that an issue had warranted Burringbar Street be blocked for a short time.
Inspector Arthurs from Tweed said staff were looking for someone in town. ‘It was a mental health episode that needed our investigation,’ he said.
The road was opened after only a short period of about half and hour.
