One man was arrested in Levin this morning at a protest at the opening of the Te Takere community centre at Levin Mall.
The 53-year-old Levin man was part of an eight-person group who were protesting about some taonga who were on the Te Takere premises.
Sergeant Martin Bull said the group was given advice on their right to a peaceful protest, but the man became aggressive and was arrested for disorderly behaviour likely to cause violence. No one was injured in the incident.
The man will appear in the Levin District Court on October 4.
