Australia: Senior Officer ordered to stand trial for assault

A senior central Victorian police officer has been ordered to stand trial for
allegedly assaulting a man and misleading a subsequent investigation into the
incident.

In 2010, the Office of Police Integrity (OPI) investigated claims Detective Leading
Senior Constable Grant Allan had broken a man's collar bone during a drugs raid in
Maryborough.

It is alleged Allan then misled OPI officers and interfered in their investigation.

He has pleaded not guilty to 10 charges during a seven day committal hearing at
the Bendigo Magistrates Court.

During the hearing, the court heard conflicting accounts of the extent of the
victim's injuries and the role of Allan and his police colleagues after the incident.

Allan will stand trial in the County Court at a later date.
