Four months prison for threatening police

A Gulmarrad man was sentenced to four months prison for threatening police in Grafton local court on Monday.

Darren John Thurling, who is 42-years-old, told police he would shoot them after they arrested him for assaulting his former de facto on January 18.

The offences occurred at Gulmarrad and police allege Thurling pushed his former de facto out the back door of her house when she had already taken an apprehended violence order against him.

He was subsequently charged with assault occasioning actual bodily harm, common assault and contravening an apprehended violence order.

After he was arrested, Thurling made threatening comments to police and those offences resulted in a four month prison sentence.

Thurling will be eligible for release on December 7 this year.
