NOT only did a Rockhampton police sergeant have to work New Year's Eve, but the officer can not come into contact with his family as 2013 kicks off after an 18-year-old woman allegedly bit him.
Courtney Fisher appeared in Rockhampton Magistrates Court this morning charged with seriously assaulting a police officer.
Police prosecutor Sergeant Darrell Dalton said the Bundaberg woman was fighting with another woman in a laneway between the Rockhampton Police Station and East St mall restaurant Outback Jacks last night.
Sgt Dalton said when two officers arrived, Fisher kicked one in the leg and bit the sergeant on the arm.
Magistrate Cameron Press ordered a disease test be done on the woman's saliva to check whether she has any contractible diseases.
Fisher was granted her request for bail.
She must reappear in court on March 1.
