Samurai sword accused in court
A 27-YEAR-OLD man who allegedly threatened a police officer with a samurai sword says he will be contesting the charges against him.
The Wallaville man, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was arrested on November 23 after police were called to a domestic disturbance.
The man, who was denied bail following the alleged incident and has been in custody ever since, today appeared in Bundaberg Magistrates Court charged with eight offences including obstructing and assaulting police.
He will appear before the court again on February 27 for a hearing mention.
