A 27-year-old man will face the ACT Magistrates Court this morning on three counts of assaulting police after members of ACT Policing attended a domestic disturbance in Reid earlier today (Friday, October 29).
Around 5am today, police were called to Kanangra Court in Reid after reports of a domestic disturbance at the unit block.
On arrival, police found a woman in distress and damage to property. Police identified an intoxicated male at the location and determined him to be in breach of his bail conditions.
As the man was taken into custody, he allegedly attempted to headbutt and kick out at the arresting officers. He then spat blood and saliva into the face of one police officer and into the upper body of another officer. OC spray was used on the offender before he was placed in a caged vehicle and taken to the Watch House where the offender repeatedly attempted to fight with police and had to be placed in a spit hood.
He has been charged with breach of bail, three counts of causing harm to a Commonwealth official, and one count of hindering a Commonwealth official.
