A man due to be sentenced for injuring two police officers during a traffic stop had his case adjourned after a pre-sentence report revealed disturbing claims he would have shot the officer. Brett Edwin Maurice Bond, 28, appeared in Geraldton Magistrates Court on Monday to be sentenced for obstructing police, failing to comply with directions to vacate the driver’s seat, two counts of stealing and make a threat to do an act. Bond was travelling in a Toyota Prado south of Mount Magnet on Thursday, August 17 when police stopped him for driving without a licence. As officers approached the vehicle, Bond kept his window up and locked his door, refusing to open it. The court heard he stood out of the car in an aggressive and agitated state, positioning himself in a fighting stance when he said “f... off c...s”. When police officers tried to handcuff Bond, he dropped his body weight, causing a female officer to fall and hit her head on the gravel. She received injuries to her head and the other officer received bruising from the struggle. Bond put a can of Jack Daniels down his pants at two liquor outlets while on bail on Monday, August 21 — once at Cellarbrations Central at 3.45pm and again at BWS at Seacrest Wandina at about 6pm. When police attended his house the next day, Bond said “get my car out or I’ll f... you up”. In court, defence lawyer John Hawkins, who hadn’t read the pre-sentence report, said Bond could have been “quite mentally unwell” and it would be unjust to send him to prison. Mr Hawkins said a suitable punishment would be a suspended term of imprisonment so Bond could engage in community programs. But Magistrate Angus Hockton quickly noted the pre-sentence report stated Bond was not suitable for those programs and that he told staff he would have shot the male officer if he could have grabbed the female officer’s gun. It was also noted Bond said he came from a good family and acknowledged he used methamphetamine and drank alcohol three to four times a week. Mr Hawkins said it was a serious matter and requested a psychological report be prepared before sentencing. The report was granted and the matter was adjourned for sentencing on Tuesday, February 6 at Perth Magistrates Court.
