A drunk couple were arrested after allegedly assaulting two police officers who had asked them to remain on the pavement during the early hours of Sunday morning in the bar precinct of Lan Kwai Fong in Central.
At 2am, a 37-year-old British man and 34-year-old Indonesian woman insisted on crossing the road at the junction of Wellington and D’Aguilar streets where police officers were implementing crowd control measures, Oriental Daily reported.
The couple ignored officers’ advice to stay on the pavement, then a dispute soon got physical. The Indonesian woman scratched a left forearm of an officer, while another officer was jostled.
Other officers then restrained and arrested the couple, Sing Tao Daily reported.
The Briton, who claimed to have hurt his arms, was treated at hospital along with the two injured officers.
