'Luge rage' alleged
A Korean tourist in Queenstown reported being assaulted in a case of "luge-rage" at the weekend.
Senior constable Chris Blackford said the man went to the Queenstown police station at 6.30pm on Saturday to report the alleged assault.
"He came in to report a case of luge-rage after luging at Skyline," Mr Blackford said.
Luging at two courses at the top of a gondola ride run by tourism giant Skyline is a popular Queenstown tourist activity.
"It appears he had run into another luge user, and was allegedly assaulted at the end of the run," Mr Blackford said.
The man had no injuries.
Skyline general manager Lyndon Thomas said police had come to the Bobs Peak luge track on Saturday afternoon and he believed the matter had been settled between police and the Korean man then.
