Swimmer loses rag over red flag in Campello

By Euro Weekly News Thursday, 13 July 2017 13:46 0

A CAMPELLO man, aged 53, was arrested after confronting two Local Police officers on Carrer la Mar beach.

Earlier he had refused to leave the sea after lifeguards warned him that swimming was banned as the red flag was flying.

Instead he remained in the water, clinging to a buoy as he mocked and insulted the lifeguards, shouting that he would not allow them to tell him what to do.

At one stage he removed his swimming trunks and put them on his head, witnesses said. When he finally returned to the shore he tried unsuccessfully to evade two police officers who were waiting for him.

Refusing to identify himself, and claiming he lived on Tabarca Island, he kicked, head-butted and tried to bite the policemen even after he was handcuffed.

He spent the night in the cells at Campello’s Guardia Civil post and was brought up before a Alicante City judge the next day.

The man had an alcohol problem, family members explained the next day: “When he drinks he loses his head.”
