String of charges follow dramatic Police pusuit

A man has been slapped with a long list of charges following a Police pursuit that allegedly saw a female officer attacked.

A domestic dispute is what started the drama, with officers called to a home in Denison Street in Mudgee around 4pm on Friday.

When they arrived, the man had already left, but his vehicle was spotted a short time later and he was ordered to pull over.


Police say the 25-year-old refused and instead sped away.

A short pursuit followed, before the vehicle stopped and the man got out and made a run for it.

He was chased down and arrested.

Police alleged during his arrest he assaulted a female police officer.

He was also allegedly found to be in possession of a large hunting knife.

He will face court today.
