Abusive man charged with serious assault of policeman

A 32-YEAR-OLD man has added a serious assault charge to his next court appearance after he spat on a police officer.

Police arrested the Dalby man, about 9.45am on September 5, on a warrant for failing to appear in the Magistrates Court.

Sergeant Sean Donaghy said the man was conveyed to the Dalby watch-house where he became aggressive when an officer spoke to him about his paperwork.

"He called the officer derogatory names, like 'white dog' and typical racist stuff," he said.

"He has then proceeded to spit on the police officer through an opening in the door."

The spit landed on the officer's pants.

Sgt Donaghy said police took this type of offending seriously, recording about 3500 similar offences across the state each year.

Police charged the man with serious assault of a police officer, to appear in the Dalby Magistrates Court on October 6.
