Man ask if he's going to be arrested, officer complies
A MAN has appeared in Gladstone Magistrates Court on Tuesday after swearing at a police officer and asking if the officer was going to arrest him.
The officer arrested him.
The police officer had been going to serve documents to Jamie Allen relating to a common assault offence when things got out of hand after the officer saw Allen walking down the middle of the road.
Police prosecutor Merilyn Hoskins told the court Allen was continuously swearing at the officer and telling the officer to get out of the car.
"The defendant said, 'What, are you going to arrest me?'" she told the court.
"He was arrested and taken to the watch house."
Allen's charges have been scheduled for a long plea on February 26.
