Cop charged with assault after pursuit
A NSW police officer has been charged with assault after arresting a juvenile following a pursuit near Goulburn earlier in the year.
The male officer from the Southern Region was part of a police chase of a stolen car in Marulan on February 21.
Police arrested two juveniles following the pursuit, one of whom made allegations he was assaulted by an arresting officer.
A police investigation into the incident, along with advice from the Director of Public Prosecutions, resulted in the officer being charged yesterday with two counts of assault.
He is due to appear before Queanbeyan Local Court on October 29.
