A MAN has been charged with grievous bodily harm after badly breaking the jaw of another man at a work Christmas party in Toowoomba.

Toowoomba Police Criminal Investigation Branch officer-in-charge Paul McCusker said the 37-year-old man was charged on Thursday.

It will be alleged he assaulted a 31-year-old man at the Royal Hotel in Ruthven St on December 18.

The man was charged with unlawful use of a motor vehicle, arson, break and enter, stealing, wilful damage, possessing dangerous drugs and obstructing police.
