Female cop assaulted
A POLICE officer is in hospital after a multi-car crash on the Gold Coast on Friday night.
Police said a Munruben man, 44, allegedly drove a ute at high speeds on the Pacific Motorway at Robina before hitting two cars and a barrier at a roadworks site about 8pm.
A spokesman said the man fled the ute and tried to push a man off his motorcycle before a female senior constable, 47, stopped and confronted him.
They became involved in a struggle and the man allegedly assaulted the officer.
Four motorists held the man down until more police arrived and took him into custody.
The man was charged with dangerous driving and serious assault and will face Southport Magistrates Court tomorrow.
