1. Bad Gran:
ACT Policing has arrested and charged a 67-year-old female for spitting on two police officers earlier today (Tuesday September 21).
Around 11am police were called to Akuna Street to check the welfare of the female. The female was verbally abusive towards police and staff at the YHA Youth Hostel and became highly aggressive, refusing to comply with police directions.
The woman was taken into custody which she resisted, continuing to swear at the police officers. As she was being placed into the caged police vehicle the woman has spat directly on the patrol Sergeant, which landed in his eye. Another officer was also spat on by the woman.
