A man who was allegedly in possession of drugs and weapons, and tried to grab a police officer's gun when he was arrested, has been remanded in custody.
David Johnson, 39, appeared in Wangaratta Magistrates Court on Friday charged with assault police, resist arrest, possessing two knives, and trafficking methamphetamine.
He was arrested with 7.5 grams of ice in his jacket.
