An Ashmont man accused of punching a police officer after trying to evade a border checkpoint at the weekend will fight the charges against him.
Brodie Stoll pleaded not guilty to two charges - assault police in the execution of duty and resist an officer in the execution of duty - when his case was mentioned in Wagga Local Court on Wednesday.
The checkpoint was being manned by three police officers and two Australian Defence Force personnel.
According to police, the 22-year-old female driver and a 25-year-old woman in the front passenger seat presented valid permits and identification.
However, it is alleged Mr Stoll - who was travelling in the back seat - provided false information.
Police said when checks revealed Mr Stoll was wanted on seven outstanding warrants - including a revocation of parole warrant - he tried to run from the vehicle and allegedly punched a senior constable in the face, knocking him to the ground.
Police and defence force officers intervened and arrested him after a short struggle.
The senior constable was treated for facial swelling and bruising. All other officers were checked and released.
Mr Stoll was taken to Corowa Hospital due to concerns about the effects of suspected drug ingestion. Police said drug paraphernalia was seized when the vehicle was searched.
After being released from hospital, Mr Stoll was taken to Corowa police station where he was charged with the two offences and also with the outstanding warrants.
He was denied police bail and appeared in court via video link on Wednesday.
Mr Stoll did not apply for bail and it was formally refused by Magistrate Christopher Halburd, who adjourned the matter to Albury Local Court on September 15.
