A man who allegedly threatened to kill a police officer in Geraldton has been denied bail. Deon James Holly appeared in Geraldton Magistrates Court on Thursday for his first hearing after allegedly threatening a police officer when he was apprehended for street drinking. It is alleged police approached Mr Holly on Durlacher Street, who responded by telling a young female officer he was “going to bash her, kill her and shoot her”, according to police prosecutor Senior Constable Paul White. Sen. Const. White said Mr Holly continued the “tirade of verbal abuse” in the lock-up. Mr Holly is also facing other charges, including attempted burglary of Quiet Life Coffee cafe, and was convicted of disorderly behaviour in public and in a police lock-up in April. Magistrate Angus Hockton said he was not satisfied Mr Holly would not reoffend in the community and denied him bail. He will next appear in court on June 23.
