Capsicum spray to defuse brawlers
Capsicum spray was needed to subdue double-dipping gatecrashers at a registered Heathmont party at the weekend.
Police were were called to the Parker Reserve celebrations on Saturday night after some gatecrashers entered the hall and started a brawl inside.
Officers separated the fighting parties and the gatecrashers left.
But they soon started a second brawl outside the party.
Police deployed capsicum foam on the brawlers.
Officers and paramedics then had to administer after-care on those affected.
Investigations are ongoing.
