Five hours spent at last Thursday’s Byron Council

If you need a fix of local government decision-making, you could dip into the odd five-hour online recording of what occurred at last Thursday’s Council meeting.

Police say that a woman resisted arrest and assaulted two officers yesterday in Bangalow.

About 8.40pm on Saturday a 45 year old female from Telofa was located on Byron Street Bangalow. Police had been informed that the female had allegedly stolen some property from a premises in Telofa a short time earlier.

The female allegedly became aggressive with officers and attempted to leave, however was prevented from doing so. The female was placed under arrest and due to her attempting to leave, police took hold of her arm.

The woman pulled away and fell to the ground, kicking an officer in the leg while on the ground. Police say they attempted to restrain the her and in the process the female has pinched one officer and taken hold of the vest of another officer and kicked her in the ribs.

The woman was eventually restrained.

Further inquiries indicated the female was in breach of her current Bail conditions. She was taken to the Byron Bay Police Station where she was charged with Assault Police X 2 and Resist Police as well as Breaching her Bail.

She was refused Bail to appear at the Lismore Local Court today.

As a result of the assault a female officer suffered a number of scratches and lacerations to her arm.

  1. It’s spelt Talofa not Telofa. I lived there for a few years, beautiful spot halfway between Byron and Bangalow. Hope the police officers weren’t hurt too badly, they do a great job.

  2. Could this women perhaps have a better change in life if she were to be approached by mental health workers as opposed to police force ! Just saying
