The Carinthian police moved out on Sunday for a corona party in the Völkermarkt district. When the officials questioned the guests, they lost their nerve.
The police then went out and questioned those who were partially drunk. The mood towards the officials was uncooperative from the start.
Two men (34 and 41) became aggressive after a check and attacked one of the police officers. After the threat of arrest, the situation calmed down and the guests were informed of the reporting of numerous administrative violations.
After the police wanted to leave the Corona Party, around eight people stood on the street and blocked the police from continuing. They insulted the officials and threatened them “with various hand signals”.
Police use pepper spray
After a policeman approached the group to start a conversation with the people, the 41-year-old massively attacked and knocked him to the ground.
Since the man did not calm down and continued to attack the officer lying on the ground, another officer used the pepper spray against the raging man.
According to the police, the situation then threatened to escalate completely and the police also used pepper spray against the two brothers of the 41-year-old.
With the support of other police officers, the four main perpetrators were finally arrested. The suspects’ interrogations and further investigations follow.
