A garda was hospitalised after being attacked and head-butted during a drugs search in Louth at the weekend.

The incident happened in Dundalk on Saturday night and came only hours after another officer was injured during a hit-and-run in the town.

A suspect will appear in court this morning after being charged in relation to the assault.

Threatening

It happened at around 9pm in the Glenwood area after a man was arrested over a small drug seizure.

Gardaí were making enquiries with a second person in relation to the drugs operation when the attack happened.

The man became threatening and abusive to two officers and assaulted them.

During the incident, one garda was punched and headbutted, resulting in injuries to his face and hands.

He was later hospitalised with concussion but was later discharged.

A second garda was also assaulted but did not require medical attention.

The suspect was arrested at the scene and was taken to Dundalk Garda Station.https://b84ad8a8ba63ae9b2788b68f5961a67c.safeframe.googlesyndication.com/safeframe/1-0-37/html/container.html

It was the second incident within a number of hours that left a garda in Dundalk hospitalised.

Earlier that afternoon, at around 1.45pm, an officer from the Roads Policing Unit suffered a broken collarbone after being dragged along a motorway by a car that had failed to stop.

The hit-and-run happened on the M1 at Jonesborough during a routine traffic stop and the suspect vehicle was later discovered burned-out in Dundalk.

The officer was taken to Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital with serious but non-life threatening injuries and was later discharged.

“No arrests have yet been made in relation to that incident and investigations are ongoing,” gardaí said in a statement.

“We are appealing for witnesses to come forward and are also appealing to road users with camera footage, including dash-cam, from along the M1 route at the time of the incident to make it available to investigators.

“Anyone with information is asked to contact Dundalk Garda Station on 042 938 8400, the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111 or any garda Station.”
