Majority of 'Supermanx' bank holiday arrests down to alcohol

Police say they'll continue to support licensees

More than two thirds of arrests over the 'Supermanx' bank holiday weekend were related to alcohol abuse.

A host of events were taking place across the Island during the extended break.

Over the four-day period, 72 per cent of the 49 police arrests were due to drink-related offences.

In a tweet, officers say those guilty should 'reflect on why they shouted abuse and became violent when asked to go home by door-staff and police'.

The Constabulary says it will continue to support licence holders to refuse entry or service to those who aren't drinking responsibly.
