Man arrested for threatening agent
A man was arrested by police on Australia Day for threatening a contact centre agent.
Police said the 42-year-old Sydney man made several nuisance calls to the emergency hotline and threatened an operator. After tracing his number, police went to his house and took him into custody.
The man will appear in court on February 19. Police in many areas across the country warned they would have a policy of zero tolerance with regard to behaviour on Australia Day.
