Man accused of shoving bloody fingers into man's mouth

A 28-YEAR-OLD man has been remanded in police custody after he allegedly shoved fingers covered in his own blood into another man's mouth at Texas.

Jamie Lee Stewart was arrested on Saturday after he allegedly got into a scuffle with a group of people on St John St at Texas on July 24.

Police will allege the man, who is believed to live between Texas and Inverell, was kicked in the head and assaulted others during the altercation.

They claim Mr Stewart wiped blood from a cut on his head, then put his hand into the mouth of one of the men at the scene.

Police will allege Mr Stewart made a comment to the man that later warranted a disease test.

Mr Stewart was charged with two counts of assault occasioning bodily harm and one count each of common assault and serious assault with intent to commit a crime or resist arrest.

Lawyer Clare Hine appeared for Mr Stewart at Warwick Magistrates Court today, confirming he consented to the disease test.

No application for bail was made and Mr Stewart was scheduled to reappear at court on September 24.
