Police will not press charges against two Russian ice skaters who were arrested early this morning after allegedly assaulting police.
The ice skaters who perform with the Disney on Ice troupe, were staying at the Newcastle Travel Lodge.
At approximately 4am, police were called to the hotel by management after two ice skaters were said to be partying too hard.
The two men refused to leave the premises and allegedly assaulted police before being arrested and conveyed to the Police station.
The troupe is leaving for Queensland today and are taking internal action against the offenders.
