    I was there when this happend, this was a couple of days after christmas so not sure why its only going viral now. The guy was so aggressive and very threatening, there were only 2 coppers trying to speak to him at first but he kept charging at them and making threats which is why they called for back up. he was clealy on something or has mental health issues. The female reception staff were in tears it was scary, the police handled it well considering. I wouldnt have wanted to try and detain him.
