A WARRANT has been issued for the arrest of an Albury man who attacked two police officers during a drunken rant after he was asked to leave an Albury unit.
Adrian Vincent Mullens had been due to reappear before Albury Local Court yesterday for sentencing on three counts of assaulting police, resisting arrest and malicious damage.
However, when he failed to appear, magistrate David O’Connor convicted him in his absence and issued a warrant for his arrest in relation to a new offence of assault.
Mullens, 37, of Thurgoona Street, was arrested after falling into a drunken sleep at a unit on June 7 when the occupants had called for help in getting him to leave.
He was aggressive and abusive when woken.
Mullens had kicked two police officers in the legs, struggled as police tried to arrest him and continued to struggle even after he was handcuffed.
Sentencing had been adjourned to allow for a pre-sentence report to be prepared.
The new charge of assault occasioning actual bodily harm relates to an offence committed on September 30.
