Brock Xavier Peters of Keswick Street was charged with hindering a police officer in the execution of duty and using offensive language in a public place.
According to police facts around 2.20am on Sunday, January 15 police were attending the Mobil service station.
After an arrest in relation to another matteran unknown female grabbed one of the officers by their uniform.
The female was moved away from the officer with an extended arm.
At this time Peters has appeared, pushingtheofficer and speaking to him in an offensive manner. “Touch my misses againand I’ll smash you,” he said according to police.
The officer then pushed Peters away who again spokein an offensive manner, and took an aggressive stance, the police statement revealed.
Due to the threat of a violent confrontation with Peters and being in the process of restraining another unrelated offender the officer deployed a one second burst of Oleoresin Capsicum (OC) spray to Peters face.
This caused Peters to fall to the ground.
Peters was then taken to Cowra Police station where he awaited treatment from NSW Ambulance officers.
Due to his violent and aggressive nature ambulance officers refused to treat Peters leaving a bottle of “No More Tears” behind so he could treat himself.
Peters’ solicitor Clive Hill said his client’s “heart” was in the right place but on the night “he didn’t know how to conduct himself”.
“There’s no two ways about it, he admits to swearing at the officer who pushed him away. He was hindering the officer,” Mr Hill said.
“The capsicum spray did it’s job knocking him over”.
In sentencing Peters, Magistrate Peter Dare said Peters was lucky the OC spray did it’s job.
“When someone used tomake an arse of themselves to police they’d get a punch in the nose, knock them arse over head,” Magistrate Dare said.
