Man who allegedly tried to run over officer fronts court

AN IPSWICH man who is accused of attempting to murder a police officer has had his matter heard briefly in court.

Darryl Reg Albert Hayes, 31, was not present on Monday in the Brisbane Magistrates Court where his defence representative asked for a short adjournment to go over the police brief.

Hayes is facing several charges, including attempted murder and acts intended to cause bodily harm, stemming from an incident at Holland Park on July 14 where it is alleged he reversed his four-wheel drive towards a police officer.

The officer, who was attempting to intercept the vehicle at the time, fired at least six shots at the Mitsubishi Pajero.

Magistrate Linda Bradford-Morgan remanded Hayes in custody.

She adjourned the matter until November 18.
