Heathcote and Axedale police have been kept busy over the holidays with many incidents in the district since the start of the year.

On January 1, two men were arrested at Eppalock Holiday Park after getting involved in a fight.

Heathcote police Sergeant John Olver said the two men would be charged on summons with unlawful assault, causing an affray and other allied assault offences.

On Friday, a Heathcote resident was cautioned for possession of cannabis and, a Mt Camel person was charged with dangerous driving on a private property.

On the weekend, district police caught and charged two drivers for driving while suspended and, also on Saturday, Axedale police caught a driver with a blood alcohol reading of 0.123.

The man was served with a Section 51 and his driver’s licence immediately suspended.

Despite all the activity, Sgt Olver said so far the summer holiday season in the district had been positive.

‘‘All in all the summer’s been pretty good to us and the drivers have been kind,’’ he said.
