Police Use Pepper Spray in Violent Resist Arrest

Police resorted to the use of pepper spray during a violent resist arrest at Dalby on the weekend.

Police responded to reports of a disturbance at a property around 12:45AM Sunday.  It was during their attempt to arrest a 34-year-old man that he allegedly became violent, resisting arrest.

It will be alleged the Dalby man assaulted one of the officers at the scene, forcing another to pepper spray him before he was taken into custody.

The man was charged with one count each of assault police and public nuisance, and two counts of obstruct police.

The offender was released on watch house bail and is due to appear in the Dalby Magistrates Court at a later date.
