A MAN has been charged by Bundaberg police following alleged unruly behaviour at Hinkler Central last night. 

Police allege that around 8pm the man and a friend had been walking around Hinkler Central acting "loud and offensive".

"He had an Esky with him," a Police Media spokesman said. 

"An Esky on wheels."

Police allege he refused to provide them with his details and refused to stand up and was eventually handcuffed. 

The 37-year-old Rosedale man has been charged with committing public nuisance and obstructing police. 

Police and ambulance crews both attended the incident.
