Sometimes a guy just wants to work on his tan and be left alone!

Gold Coast Bulletin reports:

A MAN who allegedly assaulted a tourist boat employee this morning threatened to jump off the boat and drown if he wasn’t allowed to sunbake on deck.

Police will allege the 27 year-old man trespassed onto the boat, assaulted an employee and obstructed officers.

The incident occurred just after 7am when the man boarded a Wyndham Cruises boat at the river end of Cavill Avenue and allegedly assaulted an employee on board at the time.
