‘‘The man produced something from his back pocket which the camper said was a taser,’’ he said.
The camper reported the incident to police, who attended the campsite.
‘‘I located a taser in his vehicle,’’ Snr Constable O’Toole said.
‘‘He was interviewed and charged with possessing a prohibited weapon and bringing a prohibited weapon into Victoria.’’
Snr Constable O’Toole said no threats were made. The man will be summonsed to appear in court at a later date.
