Charge over Facebook fight claim
TWEED-BYRON police have charged a 19-year-old man for using Facebook to promote a fight.
More than 5000 people confirmed they would attend a fight at Tweed City Shopping Centre through a event sent up on Facebook this month.
The fight was scheduled to break out on March 5.
Extra police were deployed to the shopping centre but no fight eventuated.
After a number of inquiries, a 19-year-old man was charged with using a carriage to make a hoax or threat.
He was granted conditional bail to appear at Tweed Heads Local Court on 11 April 2011.
