Public nuisances to front court after weekend incidents

FOUR men will front court this month on public nuisance charges after three separate incidents at the weekend.

A 24-year-old man heard yelling obscenities to, and about, police at the McDonald's carpark in Dalby about 2am Saturday was charged with the offence after officers responded to calls for assistance.

Police will further allege the man had attempted to incite others to rail against officers at the time.

A man, 53, who admitted to drinking half a tallie of Woodstock on the streets of Dalby was charged with public nuisance after he was seen kicking over bins, yelling and punching the air in the Western Downs town about 12.30pm on Saturday.

In another unrelated incident, two men, aged 20 and 23, were charged with public nuisance after allegedly starting a fight in a street outside a licensed venue early Sunday morning.

Police will allege the two men were refused entry to the hotel and waited until it closed for a third man to leave at which time they instigated a fight which spilled into the street.

The four men are due to appear in the Dalby Magistrates Court on September 26.
