A 29-year-old Ballina man will appear in court today after allegedly assaulting two police officers who were attempting to arrest him for domestic violence offences.
Police allege they were called to a Ballina address overnight where the man was reportedly armed with a knife having assaulted a family member.
When police arrived, the man no longer had the knife but was threatening family members with violence.
While being placed under arrest the man allegedly punched and kicked the arresting sergeant and senior constable.
Police were forced to use capsicum spray to control him.
He was charged with being armed with intent, intimidation, two counts of assaulting police and one count of resisting police.
He was refused bail and will appear in Lismore Local Court this afternoon.
