A MAN has been extradited to Armidale from Queensland after allegedly trying to run over local detectives last year.
It is alleged that Anthony Nalder tried to run over detectives in Armidale after they tried to arrest him for not complying with the reporting conditions of the child protection register in March last year.
Back-up police cars pursued him for a short time before he eventually eluded them. Nalder remained on the run until July last year, when Queensland Police arrested him on a serious assault charge and he was held in custody.
Nalder was released from the Brisbane Correctional Centre on Thursday. He faced Richlands Local Court on Friday and his extradition to NSW was granted.
Police transported Nalder to Armidale on the same day and appeared in Armidale Local Court on Monday to face five charges, including using a weapon to avoid apprehension, driving while disqualified and breaching bail conditions.
He was refused bail and is due to reappear in Armidale Local Court on July 9.
New England Detective Sergeant Matthew Crotty said Nalder has been wanted by NSW Police since 2008 and that the extradition was a good result.
“We won’t stand for people taking such drastic steps to avoid arrest by endangering police officer’s lives,” he said.
