A man has been arrested following an incident in Fintona on Saturday 15th June.

Shortly before 9pm on Saturday evening, police officers were performing traffic duties at a parade in the Tattymoyle Road area when the driver of a black BMW car ignored instructions from officers and swerved the car towards them. An officer was forced to jump out of the way of the car while another officer successfully deployed a stinger device to puncture its tyres. The car drove off but was located a short distance away along the Tattymoyle Road, where a man matching the description of the driver, was located hiding in a hedge by officers from Air Support Unit, who provided support to officers on the ground. The man, aged 28, was arrested on suspicion of a number of offences including attempting to cause grievous bodily injury by dangerous driving, failing to stop for police, driving with excess alcohol in breath and no driving licence.  He remains in custody at this time. A 29 year old woman was arrested in connection with the incident on suspicion of assault on police and resisting police and a report will be forwarded to the Public Prosecution Service in due course.

Chief Inspector Beverlie Reid said: “Thankfully none of our officers were injured as a result of this reckless attack on them. Police officers do not deserve to be targeted in this manner for simply doing their job.”
