Armidale’s family friendly New Year’s Eve party turned sour more than two hours before midnight after police responded to a brawl in the Tourist Information Centre carpark.
Witnesses say about eight police officers stepped in to stop the fight and two males were handcuffed.
The incident happened less than an hour after the 9pm fireworks, an event run especially for young children and families.
More to come.
