Knife at Summernats

By johnboy - 8 January 2011 5

This in from ACT Policing:

ACT Policing has arrested a 26-year-old Victorian man after an incident at the entrance to Summernats this morning (December 8).

About 5.35am police were called to the main entrance to Exhibition Park in Canberra (EPIC) after Summernats security staff saw a man carrying a knife.

Police spoke to Summernats security staff who informed the police that a man had approached the main entrance to EPIC and had been seen placing a knife in his back pocket. It is believed that the man did not threaten any staff or patrons with the knife. The man was approached by an off-duty security guard who removed the knife from the man’s pocket.

The man was arrested by police without incident and taken to the ACT Watch House. He is expected to be charged with possess knife without reasonable excuse in a public place and will be required to attend the ACT Magistrates Court at a later date.

Interesting to note the Police can’t tell the difference between January and December.

I understand there was a fairly good barney between a bunch of derros and bouncers yesterday. Info is second hand, though…

I’d like to know what sort of knife it was. A ten-inch dagger or a Swiss Army knife? I’ve been carrying a SA knife complete with scissors, tweezers and toothpick on a daily basis for nearly 30 years. Should I retire it before I run into trouble?

Maybe it was a little Barlow knife. I found one in the schoolyard in 1969 and kept it on me for many years as a lucky charm. With all the hoo-ha about terrorism and police targeting weapons in the noughties I had to leave it at home.
