Trouble minimal at Roma Cup
ONE of our rowdiest weekends in Roma has turned out to be a "great success", according to Roma Police.
Only two arrests for alcohol-related incidents were made over the Roma Cup weekend, along with five notices issued for liquor infringements and six notices for public urination.
Eleven drink-driving offences were recorded, but seven were low-range between .05 and .07, with the highest reading being .135.
Officer-in-charge Senior Sergeant Scott Jackson said he was very pleased with the patrons overall.
"We've only had a couple of incidents involving some bad behaviour at the Cup, but otherwise we're very pleased," he said.
"Only 15 traffic infringements were issued over the weekend, and most of them involved mobile phone use or not wearing a seatbelt, as opposed to infringements issued by RBT patrols.
"There were a few drink-driving incidents, but nothing that could be classified as disastrous."
Five public nuisance infringements were issued, with one case in particular involving a security officer being bitten by an unruly patron.
In addition, seven drug-driving offences were recorded for the past week.
