A 60-YEAR-OLD Nerja man was taken into custody for hurling assorted objects from his fifth-floor apartment to the street below.
Pieces of furniture, beer cans, a frying pan filled with oil and glasses crashed to the ground prompting the Local Police and the Guardia Civil to call twice at his home in Nerja’s Calle Antonio Ferrandis Chanquete.
The man, who has an extensive police record, reacted “aggressively and defiantly” on both occasions, according to the local Spanish media. He resisted arrest, grappling with several officers when he was finally detained and charged with causing a public disturbance and failing to obey authority.
Through traffic was briefly halted but only a parked moped was damaged by the rain of household items as the street was empty of people owing to lockdown.
