A woman who was ejected from a Mitchell Street drinking establishment on Saturday night is facing multiple charges after allegedly biting a security guard on the chest and being found in breach of COVID-19 protocols “by attending the premises”, NT Police said.
Authorities allege that the 31-year-old woman acted aggressively and was ordered to leave the pub due to disorderly behaviour.
When she was being escorted outside the premises by the security guard, she allegedly assaulted him and bit him on the chest.
Police said they responded to the report shortly before midnight on Saturday.
They arrested the woman at the scene.
Police said that during the arrest, the woman was found to have breached the NT Health’s COVID-19 protocols “by attending the premises”, but did not explain if she had been infected with COVID-19.
She was issued with an infringement notice for “contravention of emergency declaration” and fined more than $5,000 for breaching the health directives.
The woman was also charged with assaulting a worker who suffered harm and returning to a licensed premises after exclusion.
She is scheduled to appear before the Darwin Local Court on February 22.
