Threats to release the hounds rebounds

A HERVEY Bay man who drunkenly threatened to release his dogs on police has faced court.

When police arrived at Darren Roy Cullen’s home on August 30, he was standing in the yard yelling: “Don’t you enter my f***ing property or I’ll release the dogs,” the Hervey Bay Magistrates Court has heard.

Police had attended the home to deal with a domestic dispute and the matter resulted in Cullen, 28, struggling with the officers before he was restrained.

The father of four also kicked the police car that night, damaging a panel above the fuel cap.

The court heard that Cullen was acting “belligerent” due to a combination of having drunk 13 cans of alcohol and the fact he did not want his kids to see the police at his home.

He was fined $450 and ordered to pay $752.58 restitution for damages to the police car.

A conviction was not recorded.
