Taggers forced to dance

12:04 pm on 8 September 2010

Police in Whangarei are not amused by the case of a couple who caught a couple of taggers, forced them to dance and filmed the incident.

The video of the dancing taggers was posted to U-Tube. It shows two shambling teenagers dancing on command in the couple's living room - while being taunted by their captors.

Inspector Murray Hodson says the $64,000 question is how the couple forced them to do that.

One of the taggers is to appear in the district court on Wednesday charged with wilful damage.
