Police Officer Spat On At Manoora Caravan Park

A 19-year-old Manunda man has been accused of causing a disturbance at a Manoora caravan Park.

The man went to the park at around 11.30pm on Thursday and was told by security staff to leave, after they realised he had previously been banned from the property.

The man refused to go so the police were called.

Officers arrested the man, but he's accused of struggling as he was being led to the squad car.

Once seated in the back of the vehicle, he's accused of spitting at one of the officers.

He was subsequently charged with one count each of trespass, obstructing police and assaulting police.

The man is expected to appear in the Cairns Magistrates Court on August 27.
