Man accused of ramming ex-partner off road

A MAN accused of running his ex-partner's car off the road after a heated argument had charges against him mentioned before Toowoomba Magistrates Court yesterday.

Cameron Anthony Erbacher, 32, was not in court for the brief mention of his matters and has been held in custody since his arrest after the alleged incident in September last year.

Police claim the complainant woman had driven away from a Lockyer Valley property after arguing with Erbacher who allegedly followed in his vehicle.

Police further allege he twice swerved his car toward the woman's vehicle before ramming her car and forcing it off the road.

It is further claimed that when found by police two days later in Gatton, Erbacher had run off and had swum across a creek before being apprehended on the riverbank.

At his initial court appearance Erbacher denied the allegations.

He has not been required to enter any pleas to a string of charges including two counts of dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, two of obstructing police and breaching a domestic violence order.

His solicitor Chris Lumme yesterday asked the court for a date for a full hand-up committal hearing on an unrelated charge of carrying dangerous goods in a vehicle arising from an alleged incident at St George on August 29, last year.

Magistrate Bruce Schemioneck therefore remanded Erbacher in custody to appear for a full-hand up committal hearing by video link on January 29 with all other 27 charges adjourned to that day for mention.
