A MAN will appear in court next month charged with making a malicious complaint against police at Orange.

Just after 2am on Sunday, officers responded to reports an intoxicated man had been seen getting into his car in Lords Place in the city.

They found the man asleep at the wheel, seized the key from the ignition to prevent the man driving and removed the registration plates as the vehicle was unregistered.

About 4am, the 30-year-old man went to Orange Police Station and spoke with the supervising sergeant.

The man alleged the officers had dragged him out of his vehicle and put him in a caged police truck.

He further alleged he was driven to an unknown location and dropped off, causing him to walk for about two hours before he could catch a taxi.

However, the encounter between the officers and the man was captured by closed-circuit television cameras and a review of the footage disproved the man’s claims of police misconduct.

About 9pm yesterday (Monday), the man was arrested by officers at his house and taken to Orange Police Station.

He was subsequently charged with make false accusation and make false complaint and bailed to appear in Orange Local Court next month.
