One of the two teenage boys that sneaked into the circus after spending the evening causing trouble last week was arrested for allegedly assaulting a police officer in Dunedin yesterday.
Senior Sergeant Craig Dinnissen said a 16-year-old boy was arrested for breaching a liquor ban and assaulting a police officer last night.
The teen had been drinking at McDonalds and allegedly spat on a police officer.
It was the same teen that allegedly sneaked into the Great Moscow Circus at the Kensington Oval on Wednesday last week, he said.
