Police end party
IT was a case of deja vu for police across the Gladstone region with drink drivers and an out-of-control party resulting in another busy weekend for officers.
Seven police units responded to a party in Eucalyptus Place at Emmadale on Saturday at about 10pm after initial reports of groups of youths drinking and being unruly in the street.
On arrival, police saw a large gathering of about 300 youths and were required to shut down the party.
Gladstone Police Sergeant Royce Devlin said six police units from Gladstone and one from Tannum Sands were required to move on the youths for a couple of hours through nearby streets before they finally dispersed.
Sgt Devlin said a female teenager was arrested for assaulting and obstructing police during the incident.
Meanwhile, a 14-year-old girl has been charged with drink driving following an early morning incident in Gladstone yesterday.
The juvenile will appear in Gladstone Children’s Court at a later date in relation to the incident after she was apprehended by police following a single-vehicle collision at the corner of Bramston and Goondoon streets.
Sgt Devlin said police initially received reports of a motor vehicle driving erratically around Gladstone and doing burn outs.
He said officers found the vehicle at the Mobil 24 Hour on Dawson Highway, however, the vehicle took off.
It was involved in a single-vehicle collision with a traffic sign a short time later. A random breath test recorded a blood alcohol concentration reading of 0.027 per cent.
