Eight people arrested in street fight



EIGHT people were arrested following a fight at a Yeppoon home, yesterday morning.

Acting Inspector Graham Richards said the fight had broken out in the early hours of yesterday morning, following a domestic type incident.

Inspector Richards said the argument had started as a scuffle between three people at an address at Hill Street.

He said police had been called in to quell the situation when other by-standers became involved.

Inspector Richards said the eight people had been charged with street offences such as assault, obstructing police and public nuisance.

He said the people would appear at the Yeppoon Magistrates Court.

Inspector Richards said street offences would not be tolerated in Yeppoon or Rockhampton.

"Any unruly behaviour in the streets or minor scuffles will result in persons being dealt with to the full letter of the law,'' Inspector Richards said.
