    The man accused of absconding from managed isolation has been remanded in custody

    The man accused of absconding from managed isolation has been remanded in custody


    He's been named as Martin McVicar.

    The 52-year-old from Queenstown appeared in the Hamilton District Court via audio visual link this afternoon.

    He's facing a charge of intentional damage of a 52 inch TV and failing to comply with an order under the Covid-19 Public Health Response Act.

    Police say the man cut through fence ties to abscond from the Distinction Hotel last night and went to a nearby liquor store where he picked up a four-pack of European beer and some red wine.

    Community magistrate Robyn Paterson has denied him bail - and he'll reappear in court next Wednesday.
