Toowoomba man admits to assaulting police inspector

A TOOWOOMBA man accused of assaulting an off-duty police inspector in the car park of the city's police station has admitted to the offence.
 

Police claim Michael Charles Jarvis, 22, was kicking an unmarked police car in the Hume St police station's car park about 7.15pm, August 8.
 

The off-duty police inspector was leaving the station when he saw Jarvis and approached him.
 

Identifying himself as a police officer, the inspector went to stop Jarvis who is accused of then assaulting the officer and the pair engaged in a struggle.
 

The police inspector sustained bruising and an injury to his left arm for which it is understood he is undergoing physiotherapy.
 

Jarvis pleaded guilty before the Toowoomba Magistrates Court to assault occasioning bodily harm, wilful damage of police property, being on police property without lawful excuse, and possessing a drug related utensil found on him after he was arrested.
 

However, his solicitor Claire Graham asked for an adjournment before her client was sentenced as she had some police material to go through.
 

Magistrate Bruce Schemioneck therefore remanded Jarvis on bail and adjourned sentence to January 9 in the same court.
