Senior constable seriously assaulted during random breath test

A Police officer has been taken to hospital with a suspected broken nose after random breath tests in Coomera last night.

It’s believed the senior constable stopped two cars on Beattie Street for the tests around 8.15pm, with both drivers – a man and a woman – returning positive results.

The two were put in the back of the police car, before a passenger from one of the vehicles got out of the car and approached the officer.


A call was made for back up, before the 28-year-old male driver tried to escape the back of the police vehicle.

It’s then alleged the driver from Coomera punched the senior constable in the face.

He’s since been charged with one count of serious assault to police.

The 48-year-old female driver was charged with drink driving and obstructing police, and the 19-year-old passenger from Labrador was also charged with obstructing police.

The 59-year-old officer was taken to Gold Coast University Hospital.
