Careful what you say – Control Order for Comments

Adelaide man, George Dickson placed on a NSW Control Order after events following a 2018 arrest in Nimbin for pot possession and resist arrest. After the arrest processing in Lismore, Police refused to take Mr Dickson back to where he was staying, some 30km away in Nimbin. This led to Mr Dickson throwing stones at parked Police cars resulting in his re-arrest.
