A charming W.A. cop

He assaulted man with capsicum spray and poured beer over his head

A POLICE officer who assaulted a young man with capsicum spray before pouring beer over him has been charged.

The former policeman - a serving constable at the time - has been charged over the incident in Redcliffe on October 23 last year.

It will be alleged that the 54-year-old Walliston man assaulted a 23-year-old man by spraying him in the face with capsicum spray before pouring beer over the victim’s face.

It will be further alleged he made a false entry on the police computer system in relation to the incident. The man was charged with assault and falsifying documents.

An internal investigation into the incident was sparked after another police officer brought the man's conduct to the attention of the Police Commissioner.

The man resigned from the force earlier this year. He will appear in the Perth Magistrate’s Court tomorrow.
