Brawling duo 'full of demon juice' charged

A COUPLE of brawlers have agitated Clifton police during a night of drinking and fighting in the town.

Clifton police officer-in-charge Sergeant Guy Smidt was called to O'Shanley's Irish Bar and Restaurant after 11.30pm on Saturday after receiving reports of two men fighting.

"They were full of the demon juice and carrying on like pork chops," Sgt Smidt said.

"The licensed premises called me to attend due to the intoxicated state of them.

"They had been drinking at another location and decided to go to this one."

He said the two 25-year-olds were disturbing other patrons before they became aggressive with each other.

Sgt Smidt said he was not able to charge the men until the next day.

A Newtown man was charged with creating a disturbance on a licensed premises, public nuisance and obstructing police.

Officers discovered a bloody mess when they attended his cohort's Clifton home.

"The Clifton man has sustained some self-inflicted injuries as a result of a confrontation with a sliding glass door."

He was charged with the same three offences.

Both men are due to appear in Warwick Magistrates Court on June 25.
