A Watanobbi man is behind bars accused of assaulting a police officer at Wyong.
Police say they pulled over a Toyota Hilux on Cutler Drive yesterday afternoon.
26-year-old passenger Gregory Hart attempted to flee.
He then allegedly resisted arrest, punching a detective senior constable in the head several times.
Officers allegedly seized almost one-and-a-half grams of methamphetamine.
He’ll face court again on July 7.
