Driver, 69, clocked at 170kmh

TWEED Byron police were kept busy over the weekend handing out a series of court notices - mostly for public nuisance and driving infringements.

Highway patrol clocked a 69-year-old man travelling at 170kmh on the highway at Wooyung, plus a further three men were charged in separate incidents across the shire for a combination of drink-driving and driving while disqualified offences.

A 21-year-old Tweed Heads man will also spend a few days in the courtroom early next year after being charged with wilful and obscene exposure and other offences after being excluded from Seagulls Club Sunday night.

In Byron Bay, intervention by police officers prevented a fight between two men in the early hours of Sunday morning.

The men were issued move-on directions which they chose to ignore.

They were then arrested and issued infringement notices.

A 42-year-old man was also issued an infringement notice after trying to steal a bottle of vodka from a Byron Bay bottle shop.

Staff detained the man and contacted police who seized the property from the man and returned it.
