Police use capsicum spray

POLICE used capsicum spray to subdue a man in Coffs Harbour's CBD early yesterday.

Police saw a woman, 19, throw a bottle onto the road as she crossed Grafton Street at 3.05am.

Her partner, 19, tried to stop police speaking to her and was told to go away.

He refused to, and when he was apprehended for hindering police, he allegedly struck a senior constable's jaw.

He allegedly hit another officer at Coffs Harbour Police Station.

He was charged with two counts of assaulting police, and the woman was fined for throwing the bottle.
