A BEACHGOER defying lockdown regulations on when it’s permitted to be outdoors tried to drown a police officer when he told him it was prohibited to be on the sand on that time.
Tres detenidos en Talamanca de Ibiza. Uno de ellos por intentar ahogar a un Policía en la playa. Las otras detenidas, su madre y su pareja. La secuencia habla por si misma. pic.twitter.com/AKsxf7esro

The man was enjoying the sun on the beach with his mother and his girlfriend. Rather than listening to the police when they told them to go, the man turned aggressive.
“Don’t touch me he shouted,” launching himself at one of the officers and pushing him into the water, the other officer rushing to help her colleague.
“Three arrested in Talamanca. One tried to drown a policeman on the beach,”, tweeted National Police deputy inspector Alfredo Perdiguero.
“The sequence speaks for itself.”
Many beaches in Spain are now open to citizens for walks and for exercise during specific time slots according to age and for a maximum of an hour under the relaxation of the lockdown restrictions on going out which came into force on Saturday. However swimming and sunbathing are still banned.
