Australian Busted In Bali Over Drunken Rampage
Denpasar, Indonesia, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 12th Aug, 2019 ) :An Australian tourist was arrested in Bali after a drunken rampage that saw him fly-kick a motorcyclist, damage a convenience store and break into a home where he assaulted the owner, police said.
Nicholas Carr's alcohol-fuelled campaign of destruction -- caught in a now-viral video -- started early Saturday when the 26-year-old ran barefoot onto a street in Seminyak, a popular tourist area of the Indonesian holiday island.
As he shouted expletives, the apprentice builder slammed into the bonnet of a moving car before fly-kicking an unsuspecting local motorbike rider. The rider, who was thrown from the moving scooter, sustained minor injuries, according to police.
Carr then shattered a convenience store's glass door before stealing a motorcycle. Later, he broke into a house where he assaulted the sleeping homeowner, leaving him with injuries, police said.
"I was very drunk and I apologise. I don't remember anything at all," he told reporters.
"I just want to apologise to everyone, the victims, the Bali people, to anyone affected by this," he added.
Millions of tourists visit Bali annually. Some are arrested for a range of offences, including serious crimes such as drug trafficking, which carries the death penalty.
