A man will appear in court today after allegedly assaulting police in Werrington last night.

About 11.30pm, police from St Marys Local Area Command stopped a car on Parkes Avenue, Werrington, for the purpose of a random breath test.

The test was positive and the man was subsequently arrested.

Police will allege the 36-year-old man resisted arrest before violently struggling with the officers.

The man was subdued with OC spray; however, a number of officers were then contaminated with the substance.

The man allegedly continued to struggle with police before assaulting a male constable and spitting in his face.

He was taken to St Marys Police Station where he allegedly refused to submit a breath analysis.

The Werrington man was subsequently charged with fail/refuse to undergo breath analysis; resist arrest; assault police; and malicious damage.

He’s been bail refused and will appear at Parramatta Bail Court today.

The male constable was taken to Nepean Hospital as a precaution.
