A man charged with ramming a police car at Lismore on the weekend which saw officers draw their guns in response was granted conditional bail.

Richmond Local Area police spotted a stolen black 2012 Nissan Navara they had been searching for over incidents on the preceding days at North Lismore on Saturday and pursuit was initiated.

When the Nissan that was driven by a 38 year-old North Lismore man rammed a marked police car in Winterton Lane the pursuit ended with officers drawing their guns.

No one was injured in the incident.

On November 7 police allege the 38 -year-old man assaulted another man at North Lismore.

Then on November 16, it is alleged the man had changed the number plates on the stolen Nissan Navara when he drove to a North Lismore petrol station, filled the four wheel-drive and drove off without paying.

The man was arrested on Tuesday and charged with eight offences at Lismore police station and refused bail.

He was charged with assault occasioning actual bodily harm, not stopping in a police pursuit, negligent driving, driving furiously, receiving stolen property outside NSW, obtaining property by deception, using an offensive weapon to prevent lawful detention and not giving his particulars to another driver.

When he appeared in Lismore Local Court on Tuesday he was granted conditional bail to reappear on November 28.
