EARLIER: A TEENAGER accused of trying to run down a policeman with his car in Jandowae has been remanded in custody.
Eighteen-year-old Jandowae man Jydean Lucas Gash appeared briefly before Dalby Magistrates Court on one count of attempted murder and associated charges arising from the alleged incident about 10.45pm Friday.
Police claim the officer had stopped a sedan on High St and was speaking with the driver who allegedly threatened the policeman before turning his vehicle sharply and reversing the vehicle at the officer.
The 45-year-old senior constable was forced to jump out of the way and the sedan crashed into the police vehicle parked nearby, police have also alleged.
Police also alleged the teenager then accelerated towards the officer, forcing him to move out of the way to avoid being struck, before the offending vehicle drove off.
The officer sustained minor injuries.
During a brief court appearance yesterday, Gash was not required to enter any pleas to charges of attempted murder, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, threatening violence and obstructing police.
He was remanded in custody to appear back in Dalby Magistrates Court today.
It is expected he will apply for bail.
