A MAN will face wilful exposure charges after allegedly dancing naked on a North Stradbroke Island street in broad daylight last week.

At midday on Monday, November 2, residents reported seeing the man busting a move in the nude accompanied by loud music on a Point Lookout road.

He was not partying as hard when police arrived at the scene.

Officers said they found the 33-year-old naked and slumped behind the wheel of a vehicle.

Police woke the man, who appeared to be affected by an intoxicating substance.

Police said various bottles of liquids were found in the car. A blood sample was taken as the man was in control of a vehicle.

He was issued a notice to appear at Cleveland Magistrates Court on drug charges and for wilful exposure.

Investigations continue in relation to drug driving.

The next day, Dunwich police were called to the Stradbroke Island Hotel where a man was refusing to leave after being asked by hotel staff.

He reportedly became aggressive and threatened staff before police arrived.

He has since been fined $800 for threatening behaviour in a licensed premises.

Senior Constable Matthew Boswell from Dunwich police station said if asked to leave a licensed venue by staff, patrons must do so immediately.

"If they refuse, the likely outcome is a hefty fine," he said.

Also on November 3, officers arrested a man after he allegedly bit a man's finger and stole police equipment.

Dunwich police were called to a Point Lookout unit where a property manager was trying to help the female occupant get rid of an unwanted guest who had been asked to leave.

The property manager was allegedly assaulted by the guest, a 25-year-old man who bit the manager.

The man allegedly obstructed officers and stole police equipment, before fleeing from police.

He was apprehended and released on bail to appear in the Cleveland Magistrates Court charged with assault occasioning bodily harm, possession of dangerous drugs, stealing and obstructing police.

With these arrests reportedly stemming from intoxicating substances and Schoolies fast approaching, police urged people to drink responsibly and be mindful of others when enjoying their time on the island.
