An Australian Carnival attendant has been arrested after he allegedly smashed up fruit and vegetables that were submitted for a local show in Inverall, New South Wales.

Members of the Inverell Show Society were at the showground about 7am (Thursday 27 February 2020), when they saw the exhibition hall doors standing open. When they went inside they all their fruit and vegetables had been smashed, smeared across the walls and floors.

Some had also been eaten.

Officers from New England Police District were called when a man was found asleep in the hall surrounded by smashed pumpkins.

The man woke and left the hall but was arrested in a toilet block nearby.

The Inverell Show opens tomorrow (Friday 28 February 2020).
