Mt Barker screamer up on disorderly behaviour count

Michael TraillAlbany Advertiser

A Mt Barker man has attracted the attention of police after his late night antics could allegedly be heard from the other side of town.

The Albany Magistrate’s Court heard last Thursday that Craig Anthony Glew, who did not appear in court, could be heard yelling obscenities from the east side of Mt Barker by local police officers in their station, more than 700m away.

“At 11.40pm (on) August 1, police at the Mt Barker police station could clearly hear a male yelling obscenities in the eastern side of town,” prosecuting Sergeant Alan Dean alleged. “They drove to an address in Deane Street, 700m from the station, and located (the accused) in the driveway in an agitated state.

“He was told to stop yelling and go home ... he started walking away and then abruptly turned, clenched both fists and rushed towards the officers, screaming obscenities.”

Mr Glew was handcuffed because of his allegedly hostile behaviour. The incident landed him with a disorderly behaviour in public charge.
