Guernsey court remands man charged with police assault

A man has appeared before Guernsey's Magistrates' Court charged with nine offences, including six of threatening and assaulting police officers.

Daniel Philip Clarke, 23, of no fixed abode, was arrested after armed police officers were called to a property in Mount Row, St Peter Port, on Saturday.

No pleas were entered for any of the charges.

The unemployed man was remanded in custody to appear in court again on 13 February.

Mr Clarke was charged with assaulting three different police officers, with one incident alleged to have taken place in the custody suite of the police station.

He faced two counts of making a threat to kill two officers intending that they would fear it would be carried out.

Mr Clarke was charged with using or threatening unlawful violence towards officers.

He faced two counts of damaging property, one a window and the other a cell wall.

The final charge was that by playing loud and offensive music he made a noise to the annoyance of people in the neighbourhood.
