A British tourist, 19, was arrested early Thursday morning in Ayia Napa on suspicion of selling laughing gas and for attacking a police officer.

Around 12:30am, a patrol of the Crime Prevention Unit spotted the young man outside a club, approaching tourists to sell them the gas which provides a short-lived high..

The 19-year-old had four used and three unused ampoules, along with a few balloons, which were taken in as evidence.

The young man resisted arrest, attacking an officer and attempting to flee with the evidence. He was pinned down not too far from the scene, arrested, and transferred to Ayia Napa police station, where he faces charges for the gas as well as the attack on the officer.
