A man armed with a knife became violent at a Dunedin bar over not having a Covid-19 vaccine pass, police say.
Police were called after the man got into an argument at The Bog in George St about 8.35pm yesterday and locked himself in a bathroom.
Senior Sergeant Anthony Bond said the man then came out with a knife and smashed a window with his hand.
Police arrested the man but not before he injured an officer, who most likely has a broken hand, Snr Sgt Bond said.
