When called to the disturbance in Moyraverty police said it had escalated and four were arrested for grievous bodily harm and arson with intent to endanger life.

“Thankfully, our NIFRS colleagues were on hand to make sure no lives were at risk,” the PSNI Craigavon said.

“Just as we thought we had it all under control and were leaving with four arrests, detained person number five decided that right then was his time to shine and to take on the world. It wasn’t his time. Nor did he shine.

“Disorderly behaviour, 2x assault on police, resisting police, jaywalking, criminal damage. Muppet,” said the PSNI.
