Police use capsicum spray to break up a South Stradbroke Island festival brawl




Police on the island then called for back-up, so extra officers were brought from the mainland on a Volunteer Marine Rescue boat.

After the fight, a moored vessel suffered minor damage when a festival patron bumped a control lever, causing the boat to scrape against a jetty.

No charges or fines arose from the incidents, but police continue to investigate potential liquor licensing and COVID breaches.
