A 48-year-old man pleaded not guilty to intimidating and assaulting police officers during a bail hearing at Dubbo Local Court on Thursday. Police allege Robert Terrence Usher, of Toongi, threatened to assault his 72-year-old mother at a Darling Street address in Dubbo on Wednesday morning. When police went to the property Mr Usher was alleged to have behaved in an "extremely violent" manner which resulted in a struggle, which police claim left a female constable with two fractures in her left hand and a male constable with soft tissue damage to his right hand.
