CQ woman slapped with 1 year ban from licensed venues

A MORANBAH woman has been issued a one year ban to all Moranbah licensed premises after she threatened security and became abusive and aggressive toward police.

The incident occurred on Saturday, August 12 about 11.45pm when police were called to assist security staff at a premise in Moranbah,

Police attended immediately and found a woman who had been refused entry and was allegedly refusing to leave and threatening staff.

After police spoke with the woman she continued to refuse to leave the venue and began being abusive toward the officers.

The woman was arrested by police and received fines for failing to leave a licensed premise, obstructing police and committing a public nuisance act in the vicinity of a licensed venue.

Initially police then issued the woman with a ten day banned noticed from the single venue that the incident occurred at.

Moranbah police sought and received authorisation to extend the banning notice and she was then issued a three month ban from the venue concerned.

On August 15 Moranbah police met with the Moranbah Liquor Accord, a meeting of the licensees and managers from licensed venues in the town, police and liquor licensing officers from Mackay.

At this meeting it was decided to issue the female with a one year ban from all licensed premises in the Moranbah Liquor Accord due to the serious and violent nature of the alleged offences.

Moranbah police said they would not tolerate alcohol fuelled violence and anti social behaviour.

Senior constable Adam Dyer said: "Any person committing such offences in licensed premises in Moranbah will be subject to criminal charges and banning orders in order to protect the safety of staff and patrons in Moranbah's Licensed premises."
