Party penalty

A YARRAM man received a penalty notice for unlawful damage after a birthday party turned rowdy early on Sunday morning.

According to police, two functions had been held in the town that night – an 18th birthday party, and a sporting club event. Two party goers from the sports club event made their way to the 18th on Saturday night, and were invited inside. The night culminated with one of the newcomers damaging a door and wall at the house early on Sunday morning, with police attending and issuing him with a penalty notice.
