A woman has been arrested by Police in Palma for flouting the movement restrictions issued under the State of Emergency to combat coronavirus.

Local residents called Police when they saw a woman and some friends sunbathing near the old Gesa building in Carrer Joan Maragall.

Officers approached the group who were lying on towels on the grass in the sun, drinking and advised them that they were breaking the lockdown rules, then asked them to leave.

The woman allegedly verbally abused the Officers and told them she wasn’t leaving because she wanted to get a tan. When she also refused to provide identification the Police sanctioned her and escorted her to the station.

Anyone who refuses to comply with the State of Emergency rules can be charged with committing a crime of disobedience or resistance to authority.

@Justus Rehkugler if everybody were allowed to go outside even alone it would be worse for police to control.

The contamination risk while arresting this woman was way higher than leaving her LONELY outside. Spains government failed! It's not about arresting people who are lonely outside! It's about stopping people from meeting with other persons. This is just pure stupidity!

Selfish citizens who could transmit the virus to innocent people who are quarantined at home. Very well for your heroic National Police work for the benefit of all citizens. Nice one.
