Paramedics threatened, ambulance dented: court

THE case of two brothers accused of threatening paramedics and damaging an ambulance on Christmas Day has been adjourned until next week.

The pair, one from Tweed Heads and the other from Eagleby in Queensland, are accused of threatening violence against the male and female paramedics.

They are also accused of denting the bonnet and breaking the windscreen and aerial of the ambulance during the incident at Tweed Heads South.

Police allege the ambulance officers responded to a call-out to a man collapsed at Greenway Dr about 3.40pm on December 25.

But when they arrived, they also found the brothers, aged 20 and 29, and a 16-year-old female yelling at each other.

It is alleged that while ambulance officers were treating the unconscious male, the 29-year-old brother and female began shouting at them.

The unconscious male then awoke and threatened the officers.

The female climbed on to the bonnet of the ambulance and a 29-year-old male climbed on to the roof.
