Brothers face charges after car injures police officer

TWO brothers have been remanded in custody after being charged with attempting to run down a police officer.

Jeremy Andrew Hamley, 20, and Darcey Anthony Hamley, 23, yesterday appeared in the Ipswich Magistrates Court charged with attempted murder, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle and attempting to pervert the course of justice.

The brothers were represented by different lawyers, with Jeremy brought into court while Darcey remained in custody for his mention.

Neither made an application to be released on bail.

According to police, the brothers were directed to pull over for a roadside breath test on Brisbane Rd around 1.45am on Sunday morning.

Police allege, when directed to pull over, the car turned sharply away and struck a male officer.

The officer was thrown a short distance from the impact and the car accelerated away in a manner the police allege was dangerous.

The car was located shortly afterwards in Limestone Park off Griffith Rd.

The two brothers were arrested and charged.

The injured police officer was admitted to hospital on Sunday for treatment to injuries to his elbow and knee.

The brothers were remanded in custody until 2pm on April 23 for the committal call over court.
