‘We’ve just lost our minds’: Man tasered after toilet paper argument

A man has been tasered following an argument over toilet paper.

Police were called to a Tamworth store about 10am when a 50-year-old man allegedly assaulted a staff member and a customer during an argument believed to have been over toilet paper.

The man was arrested and taken to Tamworth police station.

Australians have been panic buying the household item over coronavirus fears, despite health authorities insisting it’s not necessary.
